Want to be happy? - Colossians 3:15-17

Does your mother ever have to remind you to say please or thank you? it is easy to forget. isn't it? It is important to say thank you with your lips. But it is far more important to say thank you with your heart.

What does it mean to say thank you with your heart? I think it means just making the best of the things you have, being glad you have them. It means thinking about the things God wants you to be thinking about and praising Him (Pil. 4:8). It means looking on the bright side, not grumbling or complaining. It means trying to make someone else happy because of the good things you have.

Let me tell you a little secret. The more you are thankful, the more you will have to be thankful about. A thankful heart will make you a ahppy person.

A bigger reason for being thankful is that you will make other people happy. Most important of all, God loves to have you thank Him.

How many things do you have to thank God for right this minute?

Colossians 3:15-17

15. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16. Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hyms and spiritual songs, singing and grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
