In a world full of materialistic wants how often do we stop to appreciate what we already have? Are we truly thankful? As we get older we tend to put more value in the things of this world then the blessings God has given us; a family that supports, friends to laugh with, the sun that keeps us warm, the rain that comes to water the flowers, a smile from a stranger, and the list goes on. God wants us to be happy but He also wants us to not take for granted the things that we have. He wants us to be thankful even for the little things.
The apostle Paul reminds us in 1 Thess 5:18 “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” If you took a moment to be grateful for the little things in your life would you be as happy as this little girl?
What are some little things you are thankful for? Feel free to share in the comments.
