“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: 2. To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,”
The Bible teaches us that as a body of believers we should be Thankful
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”
In good times an bad time we should always give thanks.
“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
We should thank him with words that are spoken.
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
Ben Franklin, Told this story from New England history. “That in a time of great despondency among the first settlers of New England, it was purposed at one of there public assemblies to proclaim a fast. An old farmer arose, spoke of their provoking heaven with their complaints, reviewed their mercies, showed that they had much to be thankful for, and moved that, instead of appointing a day of fasting, they should appoint a day of thanksgiving. This was accordingly done, and the custom has been continued ever since.”
In spite of troubles and trails, lets us continually thank and praise Him.
