REASONS TO BE THANKFUL

An elderly lady in a nursing home said, “I thank you, Lord, for two good teeth, one upper and one lower. And I thank you that they meet!” She was thankful for little things.

I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me.” She was thankful for trials and afflictions. There’s ALWAYS something to be thankful for (Philippians 4:6, 7; Psalm 103:1-5). Find yours today!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim.
