Quote of the Week #3

The third quote of the week is a paraphrase of a Bible verse and is also something that I am still learning how to do myself. I went to a church service not too long ago and the message was about being thankful, and was based on 1 Thessalonians 5:18: "In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus that you do this." (KJV) The speaker mentioned a litany of things that we all take for granted, but that we are not thankful for. He said, "how about your nose? Are you thankful for your nose? Or your eyebrows? How about the belt that you have that holds up your pants? Or how about your pants? Anyhow, after about the 20th thing that he rattled off I began to get the this week's quote is simply Thank You God. Because if we think about it, whether we are Baptist, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Catholic or whatever we all have a lot of good things to be thankful for.

yes indeed. It is funny how many times we do not bother to acknowledge thanks to the one who gave us all.
