Hebrews 13:15 KJV

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

Previously we talked about various reasons why we need to be thankful, some of which includes friends and family, having a roof over heads, having good health and even the holidays. The little things we see and assume as notting are actually massive reasons to be thankful. Let's take a look at a few more reasons why we need to be thankful. Why don't we take a look at a few more reasons?

i. salvation

if you are truly a born again Christian, then your salvation is a massive reason to be thankful. during the event of the cross, salvation was released through the blood to save each and every one of us form sin, curses and strong holds of the devil. Though saved by grace, our salvation should not be taken lightly as it is more of an identity as to who we are, and a sign of separation between us and the world.

Ii. The Church

the church is not just a place to gather and worship, it is also a place to meet new people who would eventually become family, it is a place to learn not just spiritual things but also a place where we can teach our kids good morals and discipline. Most persons see the church as a place to seek spiritual support, especially here in Africa, we tend to tag the church as a place where we can find solutions to spiritual problems or issues beyond human understanding and capabilities. The church is also a place where physical and mental support can also be found. The church is a family where we can share out weakness without a single fear of being laughed at, it also a place we can display our talents and grow them as well. if not for the church, then this community would have not been here, and I would probably be writing something else today. In other words, we would not be here today.

III. your country.

When it comes to the country Nigeria, what exactly should one be thankful of? there is no good government, we are still struggling with the issue of electricity, bad roads, insecurities, poverty and unemployment. The cost of living keeps increasing on a daily basis without any sign of change coming, schools have been on strike for months now and the government is currently doing notting about it. but let's be honest, if this county no longer exist, where would we be now?

The country might not be perfect but it is part of our identify and God knows we are capable of dealing with any situation we come across.

iv. God's word

one of the most precious gifts given to us by God is his word, His word is yes and amen, it never changes, a living word. if you have a Bible, count yourself lucky. the promises and instructions in His words are life changing and would definitely come to pass. There is always a scripture to relate with in His word in every situation we find ourselves.

v.Good food

God in all His goodness created good food for our enjoyment, have you ever sat down and wondered who invented your favorite food? Am pretty sure each and everyone of us have a favorite food, like what where they even thinking about that lead to the creation of these food. My self for example, I do not joke with cakes. I love cake so much. There are times I have Wondered how whoever made cake in the first place got the inspiration to add various ingredients to produce something so beautiful.

Be grateful for the little you have, no matter how small it might be.
