A few days ago, we just got finished celebrating Thanksgiving. But to the believer, giving thanks is the will of God (1 Thessalonians 5:18). It’s not limited to a holiday; it’s a major part of everyday life. But why is it the will of God to be thankful?
Gratefulness puts us in a place of joy. It even lightens our mood. It has even been medically proven that those who have a grateful heart live healthier lives. Constantly complaining and being negative absorbs into our bodies as well.
So let’s form a healthy habit; let’s choose to focus on what we are grateful for, not just during this holiday, but every day. It will improve our perspective, improve how we talk to people, and may even help to altar some things in our health for the better. We have it far better than what we have allowed ourselves to think.
