In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
Today's Morsel: Arnold Palmer, one of golf's greatest, said, "Know the importance of when and how to say thank you." Very rarely do we hear people saying, "Thank you" any more. I wonder what would happen if we all got in the habit of saying "Thank you" when the cashier checks us out at the store, the mechanic fixes our car, the policeman gives us a traffic violation. We could thank the pilot and his crew for getting us to our destination safely, our children for cleaning their rooms or getting good grades at school, our spouse or mom for keeping the house clean and preparing our meals or doing your laundry. Or how about your father or dad for providing for you. Do you think it would make a difference? Why did Paul say that it is the will of God for us to give thanks in everything? Because our gratitude reflects our attitude and our attitude reflects our outcome in life. Our attitudes also reflects our thinking and our thinking reflects our emotions and our emotions reflects our action. When the one leper returned to say "Thank you" to Jesus, he was not only healed, but made whole! When we learn to be thankful in all things, it's just another form of praise. Care to give it a try.
Sing: Thanks! Thanks! I give you thanks, for all you have done. I am so blessed, my soul has found rest, O' Lord, I give you thanks.
