“And we also thank God constantly for this..”
1 Thessalonians 2:13 ESV
ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
Some Things To Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving:
- Be thankful for automatic dishwashers. They make it possible to get out of the kitchen before the family comes in for their after-dinner snacks.
- Be thankful for husbands who attack small repair jobs around the house. They usually make them big enough to call in professionals.
- Be thankful for teenagers. They give parents an opportunity to learn a second language.
- Be thankful for smoke alarms. They let you know when the turkey’s done. (Richard Burkey)
This week is typically a time of year that we stop to remember the things and people we are thankful for. We are going to look at a few things the Apostle Paul was grateful for in the church of Thessalonica. In 1 Thessalonians 2:13, the Apostle Paul wrote, “we also thank God constantly.” He then proceeded to list things he was constantly thankful for about them as a church family.
