Giving thanks to the Lord, call upon his name; make known among the nations what he has done. . . Bring an offering and come before him... Giving thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever." I Chronicles 16: 8, 29, 34
But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?
1 John 2:17
When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. 11 Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. Deut. 8:10-14
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thes. 5:18
