Give thanks for all things. Does that mean everything? Yes, everything!
God’s word says we are to give thanks always for all things. That’s means all the time, and for every single thing. Give thanks for the good things, and the bad things.
The majority have an issue with this statement, because we only want to give thanks for the good, but can’t find a legitimate reason to give thanks for the bad. If we trust God in everything, truly trusting God, this will not be an issue. Because God causes all things to work together for our good.
It is God’s will for you to give thanks. Give him thanks, and while you’re at it, give him praise!
