Giving Thanks

The Covid crisis has me down.

I know I’ll never get sick, so why should I social distance?

I’ve been locked up with family for months.

The economy is bad, politicians are worse.

I have no reason for giving thanks.

The American native tribe called Minquass had a proverb, “If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.”

The Apostle Paul told us to give thanks in every circumstance.

Even modern psychologists (who often echo ancient wisdom even when they don’t know it) explain the health benefits of an attitude of giving thanks.

If you don’t see a reason to give thanks, you have not looked for it.
