Colossians 3

Colossians 3 – GIVING THANKS

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17

The spirit of dissatisfaction has become prevalent in our generation. People seem to complain about EVERYTHING. I hear too often the complaint of the “right” to free stuff. The spirit of entitlement seems to be running rampant, especially in many among the younger generations today. Although “stuff” has its place in our economy, it’s important to remember that many third world families are fighting just to have food on the table.

In the US, we enjoy rights to free speech and other benefits that many poverty-stricken nations dream of. In fact, there are over hundred hostile countries around the world where civilians are being starved and persecuted for merely declaring themselves to be a Christian.

 

CHALLENGE

God is good, ALL the time. Those who reside in the US, we are blessed. We are blessed beyond measure. God wants us to have a thankful heart in “whatever we do, in word or deed.” Let us remember to be grateful in all things. If you know you lack in this department, then it’s time to start asking God for a heart of thanksgiving!
