Give Thanks to God
Why We Need to Thank God
God has given us everything. Literally, everything. When we thank Him, we are better able to glorify Him, feel closer to Him, and sense His presence in our life. We will be better able to find peace by feeling satisfied with what we do have; pushing away feelings of envy and want. Being grateful strengthens our faith in Him, and is ultimately a testimony of our belief and relationship with God.
