Be Thankful

Verse 18 of our Bible Reading today is an important verse for Christians to remember. In this verse Paul said, “Give thanks to God at all times. That is what God wants for you in Christ Jesus.”
As Christians we should always be thankful. When we are thankful, we are not complaining. When we are thankful, we are not thinking about the bad things we might face in life – illness, war, poverty, sorrow or death. Instead we are praising God for the wonderful things He has done for us.
Being thankful can be very powerful. When we thank and praise God, the devil does not want to be near us. The devil hates it when we show God that we love Him. But God loves our thankfulness and praise. He blesses us and helps us overcome the bad things we face in life.
What about you today? Are you thankful for all the wonderful things God has done for you? Are you full of praise for God? God wants you to be thankful and praise Him.
