Overflowing with Thankfulness
I've been studying the book of Colossians. Paul was writing a letter to the believers who lived in Colosse while he was in prison in Rome. There were many ungodly influences in this city that was on a main trade route. Paul wanted to encourage them in their faith. The words he wrote continue to help, inspire and encourage us today.
Overflowing with thankfulness is a wonderful way to live. Of course, life has its many challenges. But if I only focus on what's wrong, I miss out on what's right and good and pure.
It's been too long since I sang Don Moen's song "Give Thanks". But it's a good reminder of how we are to live.
