1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV
 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Everyone is hunting for gifts this season. Christmas shoppers search for the right purchase for their loved ones and they have lists. Long lists. They look for the best sales and the stores rack up on items to sale. ‘Tis the season of shopping.
There is a tremendous amount of stuff. With all the stuff around sometimes it can be easy to become ungrateful for what we already have. I have found myself there before and I had to remind myself that everything I have God has given me. He gave me my house, my car, my husband, my kids, good health and definitely not in that order! I’m reminded that every good and perfect gift comes from above. All that stuff in the stores is just stuff.
God already gave the best gift. He gave His one and only son, Jesus. So with Christmas cheer I am reminded to stay thankful always. It is a commandment. It is God’s will. But He enjoys blessing His children. Desire Him first and He will give you the desires of your heart.
