Scripture at Sunrise 11.25.09

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  -Ephesians 5:20

Sometimes we get in an automobile accident and come out alive and we say, “Thank you God for sparing my life.” But do you ever just thank God when you go home and you don’t have an accident? Isn’t that even better?

There was a family in a church who had heard that a fellow church member had given a significant love offering in memory of their son who died on the battlefield. On the way home, the wife said to her husband, “Why don’t we give an offering of an equal amount for our son?” He said, “Why? Our son wasn’t killed.” She said, “Don’t you think that’s a good reason to give an offering?”

What should you do? Give thanks always for all things.
