Don’t look too far

We live in the world where we always keep looking because we’re not satisfied with what we have

Give thanks in all situations

Romans 1:21
Gratitude is good for your heart. Gratitude is a big deal for God.

Colossians 1:11-14
We don’t have to look far to be grateful. The only prayer you can offer that would be enough is to say “Thank you.”

Colossians 2:6-7
How’s your gratitude tank? Is it overflowing?

Ephesians 5:3-4
Another option for impurity, greediness and sexual immorality is to be thankful.
The righteous life is in thanksgiving. It is a solution for our needs.

Acts 16:25-31
Jailer saw Paul and Sila’s gratitude and that led him to believe in God. Do I have the ability to be grateful to god in the times of trouble?

Keys to thankfulness

1. Trust: trust His goodness, ability, wisdom and love

2. Be selfless: be content with life. It’s not about you

3. Be godly: be consumed with what God desires

4. Be creative: find solution, make it work. When life gives you lemon make a lemonade

5. Be patient: wait patiently for God & things in life
6. Be obedient: follow His ways and His will.
