Being thankful—even AFTER Thanksgiving

Posted on 12/2/2016 by Greg Yoder

If you have little ones, you know how embarrassing it can be. They usually say exactly with they’re thinking. In a culture where everyone’s talking about what they’re going to get for Christmas, many kids are only thinking about one thing: presents. As parents, you and I have got to train our kids on the proper response to receiving giftseven the ones they may not like. For boys, we’ve got to make sure they’re as thankful for the clothes they receive as they are the toys. How? Practice. As your kids open their gifts at home this year, coach them through how to say kind and thankful words that are edifying to the giver no matter what they receive. Then, quote 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “Give thanks in all circumstances.”

Suggested Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:18
