Give Thanks - Philippians 4:4-6 November 24, 2013

Thankfulness is both the result of as well as the means of God opening our eyes.

For some reason most of us treat thankfulness as either a form of denial of problems or something we will only experience when we get what we want. Instead, God invites us to be thankful even in the midst of difficulty and loss. Thankfulness is not the denial of difficulty, it is living and experiencing truth in all the ups and downs of life.

Philippians 4:4-6 (NRSV)

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
