Thankfulness is hard to come by these days. In a world of cynicism and entitlement, many people feel they don’t have much to be thankful for. One of the defining characteristics of God’s people is thankfulness. Why? Because we know how much we’ve been given! Regardless of what we do or don’t have in this life, we have been forgiven and restored into a right relationship with God. For this reason, thankfulness is a choice that we can make even in the worst of circumstances. What are you thankful for?
