Are you thankful?  I mean truly thankful for what you have?  I don't mean the "things" you have, I mean your family, friends, job, faith, security, love, anything, EVERYTHING!!  Are you thankful?  If not, please GET THANKFUL!!  You have so much to be thankful for.
Today, I want to challenge everyone to say "thank you" as many times as you see someone doing something for you.  They could be filling your gas tank.  They could be making your supper for you when you come home.  They could be ringing your groceries through.  Sure some of them are getting paid to do it, and some don't expect it, but if you were in the same boat dealing with grumpy people day in and day out, would you want someone to sincerely thank you?  
Are you thankful?  In 1 Thessalonians 5:18 it says, "give thanks is all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."  ALL circumstances!  I know there are some people, and you might be one of them, who feel in despair.  You think you have nothing to be thankful for.  You might think that the whole world is against you.  But it's not.  Believe me, it's not.  There is a God in Heaven who loves you.  He created this world for you, and sent His only son Jesus to die and be risen from the dead to atone for the mistakes of this world.  If you were the only person in the whole world, Jesus would have still come, just for you, so that you might live.  Are you thankful?  I know that makes me feel pretty thankful!
