HAPPINESS & THANKSGIVING

“Happy Thanksgiving” is more than a wish. It’s also a fact. There’s a direct correlation between happiness and thanksgiving. Those who give thanks are happy, cheerful people. On the other hand, those who’re ungrateful swim in pools of melancholy, misery, despondency, depression, gloom, and unhappiness. It’s as though they were baptized in lemon juice! Let’s stop complaining, and give thanks. “Nothing tends more to promote health of body and of soul than does a spirit of gratitude and praise. It is a positive duty to resist melancholy, discontented thoughts and feelings,—as much a duty as it is to pray” (E.G. White). It’s not happy people who’re thankful; it’s thankful people who’re happy. Therefore, "in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you" (1 Thessalonians 5:18).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
