In Everything Give Thanks

Read the bible today and devotion and was reminded of a few things, namely that I should not whinge so much but that I shld count my blessings and be content...for life could be worse...
In every thing give thanks.
If we pray without ceasing, we shall not lack and we would be thankful for many things.
As we must in every thing make our requests known to God by praying, so we must not omit thanksgiving (Phil 4:6 ).
We should be thankful in every condition, even in adversity as well as prosperity. It is never so bad with us but it might be worse.
If we have ever so much occasion to make our humble complaints to God, we never can have any reason to complain of God, and have always much reason to praise and give thanks: the apostle (Paul) says that this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning us, that we give thanks, seeing we are reconciled to God in Christ Jesus; in him, through him, and for his sake, he allows us to rejoice always, and reminds us to be thankful in life for many things. And thus, this pleases God.
