The 3 Benefits Of Thankfulness

August 19, 2015Aug 19, 2015

The Bible encourages us to be thankful in all things.  There are 3 great benefits to this.

First, we thank God for He is the giver of every good gift, and that is the right thing to do.

Second, it will remind us of our many blessings.  Here are just a few things you can thank God for that may apply to you.  You can thank Him for life; for good health; for living in a free country; for the gift of His Son Jesus Christ; for family; for financial blessing; for having protected you from accidents; for the ability to see, and walk, and talk, and taste and enjoy food; for His mercy over America; and for any good things that have happened to you.

Third, as you are thankful and focus on good things, it may help bring your problems into perspective.  When we focus on our problems they can seem to grow larger.  When we focus on our many blessings, we still have our problems, but we are reminded of the good things in our lives as well.

So let's be thankful each and every day!
