Giving Thanks (2)

Yesterday we started talking about giving thanks to God. Our question today is: When should we give thanks to God?
The Bible clearly answers that question in Ephesians 5:20. This verse says, “Always give thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” It is easy to think about giving thanks at only one time of the year. But God does not give us His blessings only one day a year. He blesses us every day! Often, though, we fail to give thanks to God.
The Bible gives us many examples of when to give thanks. Verse 2 of our Bible Reading tells us we can give thanks in the morning and at night. In John 6:11, we read that Jesus thanked God for food. We can thank God for food every time we eat. In Philippians 4:6, Paul reminds us to give thanks when we pray.
I hope that you are thankful and that you will take time today to thank God for His many blessings.
