Paul describes the Spirit-controlled Christian as one who is “giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20).
I read of one man of God who was meditating on this verse while he was brushing his teeth one morning. He was challenged by the thought of thanking God for everything! He said, “I began thanking God for my toothbrush. Then I thanked Him for the toothpaste. Then I realized that I had never thanked God for my teeth!” He went on to ask this probing question: “If tomorrow’s supply of blessing depended on today’s thanksgiving, how much would I have tomorrow?”
As you go through this day, try to consciously thank God for all things. . .small and big things!
