Have You Thanked God Today?

When you woke up this morning, what is the first thing that you did when you got out of bed? Did you eat breakfast? Pick out the clothes that you were going to wear today? Take a warm shower?

All of these things are routines and sometimes mindless things that we do everyday, but let's think about it in a different way - what if we didn't have a home? No bed? Nothing to eat? No clothes? No water for drinking or bathing? Now all of these mindless routines that we would of normally done everyday would not exist. Instead, we would be thinking hard on how to scavenge for food, a place to bathe, a cozy place to stay and clothes to keep us warm.

Therefore, if you have these basic necessities and you go about your day without thinking about what it would be like to not have these things, then it is time to think and give Thanks to the Lord that you DO have these things! A majority of us will pray to God to give thanks about a new job promotion or extra money that come into our life or something on a grander scheme, but what about the little things? What about giving Thanks to God daily for waking you up each morning and giving you the basic necessities of life? It's the little things that matter the most! So many people in this world are hungry or cold or need a place to stay just to Live. And some people just did not have the fortune to get out of bed today.

So I ask the question again - Have you given Thanks to God today? How about when you opened your eyes today?
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
