DAY 22 SUNDAY: NOVEMBER 2020

LEARN TO BE THANKFUL ALWAYS IN LIFE!

Giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:20).

As Christians, we should learn to be thankful to God always in life. A life of ingratitude is a life of bondage. In the opening text, Apostle Paul admonished us to give thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to be thankful to Him always in life. A Christian should avoid the life of murmuring, complaining and worry. No matter the situations and challenges, learn to always give thanks to the Lord in life. A Christian’s heart can never be full unless he is thankful to God in life. A life of thanksgiving is indeed a life that is absolutely full of gratitude and appreciation to God always in life forever.

A life that is not contented can never be thankful and grateful to God always in life. A Christian should learn to live a life of contentment and be thankful to God always. That is why Apostle Paul told Timothy his beloved son in the Lord thus, “Now godliness with contentment is great gain” (1Timothy 6:6). Therefore, whenever a Christian is full of godliness and at same time he is contented in God always, definitely he will remain grateful all the days of his life. When you are not satisfied in little, you can never be satisfied in abundance in life. Therefore, learn to be grateful in the little things God has done for you in order to receive more abundant blessings in life. Hence, a life of ingratitude devoid of contentment is of course a life that is absolutely not worthy of living forever.

In fact, a life of thankfulness opens doors of favor and opportunity in one’s life. Anyone who is grateful in the little that God has done, he will definitely receive more favor and opportunities from God in life. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in Philippians 4:6, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” In fact, a Christian is expected not to be anxious in life but in every situation and challenge, he should learn to be thankful to God always in life. Therefore, a life of thanksgiving and appreciation to God always is indeed a life that will definitely attract God’s blessings often in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian should learn to live a life of thankfulness to God and be joyful always in life forever. Shalom!
