Bible Verse
1 Thessalonians 5:18 “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus” Dietrich Bonhoffer once commented that “We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.” Put another way, we often focus on asking God for things without ever stopping to be grateful for everything we already have. We feel we have a right to the basic things in life such as food, shelter, health or family and often take them for granted. When we don’t have one of them or we come across some one less fortunate than ourselves, we become grateful for all those basic things. Our verse tells us to “give thanks in all circumstances”, looking at the things we have rather the next thing on our wish list. When we appreciate what we have, we can give thanks for the small and the ordinary things of life.
