We should strive to always be thankful. Paul reminded the Corinthians of this in 2 Corinthians 4:13-18. Paul who was often persecuted, to near death, always found ways to be thankful. He realized the bigger picture, and was thankfuyl for God’s eternal work.
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our daily trials that we forget to be thankful. I sit for a moment this day to be thankful. God did not choose to bless me with riches of human desires, but I am rich with His love and mercy. I am rich in the blessing of a caring family and close friends.
No one should ever consider themsleves with out reason to thank God, if they are saved from sin. We are part of God’s family, and we should, like Paul, look to the greater blessings God is building each day.
