Have you noticed how it’s so easy to become ungrateful? We can slip into it without even trying. It’s so easy to look at the things others have and wish you had them. Then you begin to be ungrateful for the things you do have.
However, God’s word challenges us to be thankful in all circumstances.
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)
So begin small. See if you have a favorite food that you could be thankful for. Then look to see if you have a piece of clothing that you can be thankful for. How about a favorite scripture that you could thank God for? If you begin to look, you’ll see that while you might not have as much or the same as someone else, you do have things to be thankful for.
So take some time today to find things you can be thankful for. If you’ll look, you’ll realize that even if you’re in the middle of some bad circumstances, there is still something to thank God for.
