We are suspended between blessings received and blessings hoped for, so we should always give thanks. Thanksgiving is good, THANKSLIVING is better.
It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart. Try to be satisfied with your lot, even if you don't have a lot.
Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayers and worn with thanks. As the Lord loves a cheerful giver, so likewise a cheerful thanksgiver.
"I find in whatsoever state I am therewith to be content." This would not mean so much were it not for the fact that it was uttered by a man who was unfairly treated, unjustly jailed, and finally was a victim to the executioner's axe. --The Apostle Paul.
The finest test of character is seen in the amount and the power of gratitude we have. No duty almost is more stressed in both Testaments than this, of rejoicing in the Lord. It is no less a sin not to rejoice than not to repent.
