Thankfulness is important. Having a spirit of gratitude while praying produces peaceful contentment. Unthankfulness is ungodly. We can express thanks for Sabbath services, access to the Father, the service of our ministers, prayers offered on our behalf, provision of basic necessities, and a simple way of life. Pause spontaneously to express gratitude in prayer. Keep a list of things to be thankful for. Ask God to grant you a spirit of gratitude.
Philippians 4:6-7 – satisfaction – thankfulness – 2 Timothy 3:2 – contentment – prayer – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
