Always Thankful

Yesterday many people in America celebrated a day of Thanksgiving. But no matter where you live in the world, it is good for you to thank God for what He has given to you.
Recently we found a stray kitten in our garage. I brought a small dish of milk and set it on the floor. Soon the kitten came out of its hiding place. The kitten purred and drank the milk. I think the kitten was thankful that we gave it some milk.
That kitten may have been thankful. But it is often hard for people to give thanks to God. In our Bible Reading today, Paul reminded the Christians in the city of Philippi to always give thanks. Giving thanks should be an important part of our prayers every day.
What are you thankful for today? The food you have to eat? The place where you live? Your family? God’s love and salvation through Jesus? Don’t forget to take time today to talk to God and thank Him for His blessings.
