If our thanksgiving is based on circumstances, then when our comfort, our homes, and our health all fade, so does our thanksgiving. This is the way the world works, but not Christians. God’s will is that in all circumstances we give thanks. We have a treasure, and inheritance, that is guaranteed and sealed (Ephesians 1:13-14). Even if we lose everything we own, the One who owns us will never lose us. This alone is worth giving thanks! As believers we know that our best life comes later, and that isn’t because heaven is full of the joy of stuff, but rather full of the joy of Christ (Psalm 16:11). May we say like Asaph “Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you” (Psalm 73:25).
