Cultivating an attitude of Thanksgiving
William Bradford “Of Plymouth Plantation 1620-1647”
The name of the Lord
That His lovingkindness is everlasting
Answering their cries
For bringing their soul out of prison
An attitude of thanksgiving.
How can we possibly give thanks in those days?
The problem lies in our tendency to dwell on the evil and the pain and the unfairness of them.
Don’t dwell on these things.
For God’s love and grace, for one another, and for Christ, and for the victory He secured for us at the cross.
By letting the word of Christ richly dwell within us.
Practice these things, recall them to mind, in all kinds of situations - happy, sad, boring, disastrous.
Practice practice PRACTICE!
I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
No Bible study this Thursday as we celebrate Thanksgiving
