1 Thessalonians 5:18. in everything give thanks. For this is Gods will for you in Christ Jesus.

So often we interpret this verse to mean give thanks when we face trials and difficulties. I start with our question. How many times a day do we thank God for something? We hear a bird sing. Do we thank God for creating so many different kinds of beautiful sounds? We see a flower. Do we thank God for creating so many beautiful aromas and colors? Our body functions right. Do we thank God for our health? We have something to eat. Do we thank God for the food we have? I think we all get the drift. Let us learn to practice the habit of thanksgiving. Let us continually thank God throughout our day for what we can do, can hear, can see, can feel, can eat, can drink, can say and etc. Let every day be a day of “in everything give thanks” continually.
