Give Thanks

…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV)

No, it is not easy for us to give thanks in all circumstances. It goes against the human psyche. We want to be angry when things do not go well. We want to be hurt and, sometimes, wallow alone in our frustration.

But this is not what we are called to do, and what does it profit us to do so? Has worry or frustration added even a moment to your life. No, and as such, we should focus on moving forward, giving thanks.
