Give Thanks in All Circumstances

Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry, the famous Bible scholar, was once accosted by thieves and robbed of his money. Following that event he wrote these words in his diary:

“Let me be thankful first because I was never robbed before; second, although they took my purse, they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, and not someone else.”

I suppose we can always find some reason to be thankful!

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”—1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
