In Everything Give Thanks

In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

It doesn’t say to give thanks for everything — I can think of a few things not to be thankful for.  But in everything, we are to give thanks.

Sometimes, that’s a strain.  Sometimes, the only thing I can find thankfulness for is that it could be worse!

But maybe that’s OK.  Maybe the whole point in every circumstance is to just be thankful, because it turns your eys to God.

Psalm 107:2-8

  2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of
the enemy;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from
the north, and from the south.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to
dwell in.
5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out
of their distresses.
7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of
habitation.
8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful
works to the children of men!

Selah.
