Be Thankful

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (New King James Version)
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Each day there are so many things to be thankful for. It is easy in the busy hustle and bustle of life to overlook so many of God's blessings. For example....did you ever take the time to think what goes in to just pouring yourself a glass of orange juice. Someone had to plant and take care of the tree. Then, someone had to pick it, put in in a crate,on a truck, drive it to the factory where they make they juice. Then many people were involved in the production and others were making the carton they would put it in. Then people had to make the truck to transport it, the roads for it to travel on, the gas to keep the truck going. The building where the food store is located. Then, there are the employee's that work in the store. Someone made the glass you drink it from, the refrigerator you keep it in. You get the idea simple things we overlook each day. So many of God's blessings go unappreciated. Stop and take a moment for all God does for us each day and give thanks.
