Be thankful in all circumstances…
1 Thess. 5:18 (NLT)
Such a simple group of words with such potent strength and meaning. John MacArthur, in his commentary on 1 Thess. says, “That simple, direct statement allows believers no excuses to be ungrateful.”
Truthfully, this is an area in which I struggle. My first response to circumstances is not always thankfulness, but often is complaint or worry.
I have no excuse to be ungrateful.
