Most people have no trouble finding things to complain about: traffic is slow, gas is too expensive, the weather is bad, prices are too high. Yet in every single situation, that same person also has a lot to be thankful for: he can drive, has a car, has a shelter to be protected from the weather, and has the money to purchase necessary items.

Your circumstances may not be all that great, but wherever you are it is God’s will that you give thanks in everything (1 Thessalonians 5:18). As a Christian, that is possible because no matter what your circumstances are, you can always thank God for deliverance through Christ (see 2 Corinthians 2:14; Romans 7:24-25).

Indeed, the Israelites knew that thanksgiving was so important that part of the official duty of the tribe of Levi was to thank God: They were also to stand every morning to thank and praise the Lord (1 Chronicles 23:30). They had heart of thankfulness and were instructed to be thankful regardless of what happened that day.

The psalmist wrote: Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name (Psalm 100:4). Notice that we can’t even enter God’s gates unless we’re thankful.

It certainly is possible to live giving thanks to God the Father for everything (Ephesians 5:20), because thankfulness depends on what is in your heart, not what is in your hand.

“One of them came back to Jesus, shouting, ‘Glory to God, I’m healed!’ He fell flat on the ground in front of Jesus, face downward in the dust, thanking Him for what He had done. . . . Jesus asked, ‘Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the nine?’” Luke 17:15–17

I have often thought of how exciting it will be when we get to heaven and our eyes will be opened to see all the miracles God did for us — most of which we were unaware of. However, we will also come to realize how many times we rationalized away many of the miracles— just like the nine lepers who were healed.

The cartoon character Charlie Brown gave several possibilities as to why the nine lepers never returned to Jesus to give thanks. Keep in mind that these are only possibilities, but they reveal a lot about human nature. One man waited to see if the cure was real. – One waited to see if it would last. – One said he would see Jesus later. – One decided that he had never really had leprosy. – One said he would have gotten well anyway. – One gave the glory to the priests. – One said, “Oh, well, Jesus didn’t really do anything.” – One said, “Any rabbi could have done it.” – One said, “I was already much improved.”

Think about it. Are we thanking God for all He has done and is doing for us? Or are we, like the lepers, rationalizing away God’s miracles? Father, would You please give us an attitude of gratitude — every day?

Thank You! Amen.
