Why Be Thankful?

When the famous preacher Charles Spurgeon was robbed on the streets of London, his wife asked him why he was so thankful. He said he wasn’t thankful that he was robbed, but he was thankful the robber took only his money and not his life and that the robber got away with very little. Finally, Spurgeon said, “I’m thankful to God that I was not the robber.”

That proves a biblical point: There are always reasons to be thankful in life, always reasons to obey Paul’s admonition, “In everything give thanks.” Note that the verse doesn’t say for everything give thanks, but in everything give thanks. In every situation in life there are reasons to give thanks, not the least of which is the truth that God uses all things for good in the lives of those who belong to Him (Romans 8:28). Consider all the other reasons we have to give thanks: our faith, family, friends, finances, future, and more. When we serve a loving Father who wants the best for His children, it is easy to give thanks—for Him and for the plans He has for our life (Jeremiah 29:11)

If you didn’t wake up in a thankful frame of mind today, consider what God has done for you. And give thanks in everything.

God’s giving deserves our thanksgiving.
