Why You Should Be Thankful

It’s Thanksgiving week, so there will be a multitude of posts about thanks this week. Count this one as one of them.

There are many reasons why we should be thankful. We are blessed beyond measure in this world. Most everyone who reads this lives in the United States. You have freedoms that most people in history have not shared with you.

Do you have a car? Most people in the world do not have this luxury. They either walk or ride a bike.

Most of us will eat and overindulge on Thursday. We will eat more in one day than many eat in a month.

There’s another reason to give thanks this week, though. Actually, it’s a reason to be thankful every day.

It’s the will of God.

Yep, it’s right there in 1 Thessalonians 5:18. Paul writes to give thanks in all circumstances because it is the will of God in Christ.

Most of us want to know the will of God for our lives. We want to know who to marry, what job to take, or whether we should do this or that. However, we totally forget or ignore the points where He tells us exactly what His will is.

It seems a bit ridiculous to think He would tell us anything else if we aren’t doing the plain things He has already told us, doesn’t it?

So, I am challenging all of us to live a continuous thankful lifestyle. Be thankful every day. Be thankful in all things. Live out God’s will for your life.

    It is sad we have one day a week when we remember to say thanks. It should be 24/7/365 as you have pointed out.
