“Giving Thanks Always!”

“Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!” (Ephesians 5:20) “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) In all circumstances! This comes as a surprise when one considers the vicissitudes (variations) of human life. Sickness and health, poverty and wealth, joy and sorrow — are all ingredients of the cup placed to human lips — so all must come within the scope of thanksgiving. Why be thankful for everything? Because God causes everything to work together for good to those who love Him.”
