  5. Emeasoba George:

    Ist Thessalonians 5:18 says give thanks in all things for this is God's will for you. Yes of course, so says the scripture in black and white. I'm just adding that giving thanks in all things implies these. Glorifying God for giving you thousands of money even when you expected to receive millions. It equally means, appreciating God daily even when you cannot afford three square meal. Giving thanks to God always also comprises, rendering praises to him although you may be presently hospitalized or sick. Thanking God in all things also includes, being happy that you encountered a failure although you wished to see success all the way. Conclusively, giving thanks to God in all things is all about, continuous appreciations to God, regardless of whether you are in a good time or in bad time, favourable or unfavourable condition. That is just the summary of what it really means to give thanks to God at all times. -Emeasoba George
