Did you know Thanksgiving is really God's idea?

Key Points:

  • God doesn’t want us to be grumpy.
  • You can’t be thankful if you only focus on yourself.
  • Thankfulness is an attitude that comes from knowing that God is good.
  • When we’re at church, we should sing with thankfulness. 

Memory Verse:

Psalm 100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.
