Giving Thanks and Being Grateful

Sometimes we spend so much time complaining about what we don’t have. We don’t give enough thanks for what we have and what God has done for us.

We may want steak for dinner but can only find a tin of sardine in the cupboard, let us bless it and give thanks. We need to give God thanks with a grateful heart. Whatever culture we are, whatever we believe in.

There is only one true God, He is right all the time.

Do we focus our energy on conditions in our lives that doesn’t look fantastic or favourable?  Let us think about those who are battling with the corona virus – the hundreds that died, families without shelter or food, people suffering the aftermath of various disasters like- earthquakes, fires and the list goes on…..

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for [a]all these things must come to pass, butthe end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, [b]pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
Matthew 24:6-7 New King James  (NKJV)
