How To Be Thankful

It’s Thanksgiving week, so my posts have focused on why and when to give thanks. This post continues the theme.

I hinted at it yesterday, but we have to think about how to be thankful in all circumstances.

One of the things we do is at Thanksgiving is think about or list all the reasons we are thankful. I don’t want to minimize or downplay that.

However, this can lead us down a path that we are thankful for all of the good in our lives, leaving out the other circumstances in our lives. So what do we do with what 1 Thessalonians 5:18?

We have to base our thankfulness on something other than all circumstances.

Or Soneone.

If we base our thanks on events and things in our life, we will be in for a roller coaster ride. And let’s face it, we’ve all ridden that ride through life.

Instead, let’s focus on the One that all of these things cones from. Let’s turn to Him for thanks.

It’s only then that we can transcend all of the circumstances around us and give thanks in all things.
