Good morning!
Text: 1 Thessalonians 3-5; Psalm 14
Happy Thanksgiving.  1 Thessalonians 5:18 instructs us to…

“…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

There is a companion verse, Ephesians 5:20, which teaches that we are to be…

“…giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

This Thanksgiving Day, we have the privilege of bringing these verses to life.  No matter our circumstances, we are to thank God.  And we are to thank Him for everything – the good and the bad.  All that we have has come from Him.  He is a good God who loves us with immeasurable love.  We all have so much to thank the Lord for.  We have salvation in Jesus, the breath of life, we live in a safe and beautiful land, we have one another, and so much more.  Thanks be to God!
in Him, Mike
