The Discipline of Thanksgiving

"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." - 1 Thessalonians 5:18 I came across some interesting statistics recently about

how Americans spend our time. An average 70 year old spends his/her lifetime... working - 26 years

sleeping - 23 years watching tv - 7 years worrying - 7 years eating - 6 years giving thanks - 88 hours It's easy to worry. We're always stressed about something or someone. Giving thanks is like eating vegetables. It requires intentionality and discipline. Not only is giving thanks good for your soul, it's part of God's will for your life and mine. In the midst of eating turkey, watching football, and stressing out about meeting in-laws, I encourage you to make time for thanksgiving. Be intentional and proactive. Give thanks with family/friends. Give thanks when you're alone - in your prayers, your conversations, your journals. Let's honor God's command to live a life of thanksgiving. - Pastor Caleb
