1 Thessalonians 5:18 | Give thanks in all circumstances

Gratitude flows effortlessly when everything in our life is going well. But can we be grateful in difficult times, when we go through uncomfortable situations?


This is what verse 18 of chapter 5 of the 1st letter to the Thessalonians says, with the two previous passages also adding simple and valuable advice:

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

16 Rejoice always,

17 pray continually,

18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.


(NVI)
