“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus”

Audio Icon   1 Thessalonians 5:18



People may find it easy to be thankful for a delicious meal or a good day. But it can be hard to give thanks all the time, especially in the hard times. In this episode, the KC gang had a very rough day. However, when they gathered together, they discovered that God had blessed each one of them even through their hard times. How can you be thankful when you are having a bad day? A starting point is understanding that Jesus continually thanked his —father throughout his ministry, even in tough times.

Want to dig deeper? Check out these Bible passages about giving thanks during hard times: Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Peter 5:7; Philippians 4:13.


At your family mealtime, go around the table and ask each person to share one good thing about their day. What you share doesn’t have to be your favorite thing or even a very special thing. But you can give thanks for it because it is one way that God has blessed you that day. You may find that this exercise will cause family members to share even more stories about their day. You don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving to give thanks!
