I thank God for my blessings – EASY
I thank God for blessings bestowed on my loved ones – EASY
I thank God for blessings bestowed on people I don’t especially like (i.e, the whiners, the tricksters, people on the other end of the political spectrum, the guy who just cut me off in traffic) – HARDER
I thank God for my troubles – HARDEST
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (CEV)
Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do.
