Giving Thanks Brings Happiness

Happy Thanksgiving! We should never have to wonder what Thanksgiving is about. It’s all there in the name.

Psalm 100:4 says, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!”

The person who gives thanks learns to be thankful. And the thankful person is a happy person.

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving” (Col. 2:6-7).

We live in a world under the curse. Not everything is good or easy. But if you look, you’ll see how much you have to be grateful for. Say thanks to God. And find others to say thanks to as well.

And remember, giving thanks brings happiness.
