Yes, most of the time we do it without thinking.
Maybe conplain about how things does not work as we want it to be at home or at work.
Complain about the stress of the season...so much to do with so little time.
Not having enough money to buy all the gifts that you need to buy.
How about ungrateful people who were not satisfied of the gift that you bought?
Not to talk about unfairness everywhere.
There are a lot of things that we are not satisfied with like how the leaders run the country...how some people does not want to do a thing, but expect others to do everything?
Well, the list can be endless...
But God said: Do all things without complaining and disputing. Philippians 2.14.
Dear God, thank you for your patience towards us and the reminder not to murmur.
Let us do everything with thanksgiving because there are lot of things to be thankful about.
Let us be obedient and loyal to you no matter how hard the situation might be.
Thank you because you delight in Your children whose walk are steadfast.
Thank you because with you, we don't need to be afraid.
Remember: A merry heart is a healthy heart.
So I am thankful for the flowers at Christmas time.
For having the chance to make homemade cookies to be given to the elderly on Sunday where we are going to share God's word and love.
For my sister and brother-in-law who baked cookies for the ederly.
For lunch that I had eaten at the mall yesterday.
How about you?
What are you thankful about?
