Give Thanks!

1 Thessalonians 5:12-18

As we enter the holiday season, we have much to be thankful for!!! Our Lord and Savior Jesus, our faith, our families, our church, our friends, our career, our home, our possession, our health, and the list goes on. But as we all know we live in a fallen and broken world, and not everything in life is a bed of roses. In fact, you may not be at all thankful for many of the items I have listed. Your family maybe not supportive and has been abusive in your life. Maybe you have friends who take you for granted and use you. Maybe you are harassed at work. Or maybe you are battling an illness or injury. How can we be thankful for things that hurt us? Let’s see what God’s word says about this. Let’s discovery how He directs our us to have thankful hearts in all things (1 Thess 5:18).
