Being Thankful in a Grumpy World

Ever been around a person who can find something negative about everything?  Next Thursday, we will celebrate a holiday that invites us to be thankful.  Sometimes that's easy to do.  Other times, it can be difficult, especially if we are around grumpy people.  If we can learn to be thankful, it will not only change our outlook on life, but it can also change those around us.  That's what we'll be talking about this weekend. 
I hope you can be here!  

As you prepare for the weekend, here are some Scriptures: 

Deuteronomy 8:10-18

                               - Is it easier to thank God during good times or tough times?  

                               - If you remembered and wrote down all that God has done for you, what would be on that list?  

                              - Prior to Sunday, try writing on paper the gifts and blessings you enjoy that God has given you.  

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

                                - what would it look like if you were to "give thanks in all circumstances"?  

                                - How is that possible?  

                                - What do you think being thankful has to do with praying and being joyful?
