Bible Story: Give Thanks No Matter What | 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Have you ever paused to think about everything God has done for you? He created a planet that’s perfectly suited for otters and ostriches and YOU. Then, He sent His Son, Jesus, to that planet to die and be raised to life so He could have a forever relationship with you. Throughout this month, we’ll help kids refocus their attention to all that God has done for them. Because when you know what God has done for you, YOU CAN BE THANKFUL—ALWAYS.
This weekend we learned that we can always be grateful.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 is so important because it teaches us to thank God in every situation we face. God doesn’t need to hear our thanks, but He wants us to develop the habit of being grateful no matter what!
