Colossians 4:2, Psalm 126, 2 Corinthians 4:13–15,




  • Thankfulness in all circumstances
    • Does cynicism or thankfulness mark your life?
    • Cynicism doesn’t create community, it isolates the saints
  • Prayer for joy (Psalm 126)
  • Grace creates thankfulness (2 Corinthians 4:13–15 & 2 Corinthians 4:7–10)
    • Thankfulness does not dismiss or ignore suffering and pain
  • Thankfulness multiplies (Jeremiah 30:18–21)
    • Cynicism dies, thankfulness multiplies
  • Thankfulness even when we don’t know the future (2 Corinthians 9:10–11)
    • Daily provision, not yearly storehouses.
  • Thankfulness in the everyday (2 Corinthians 4:16–18)
