Have you ever thought about you have a lot to be thankful for. Lets look at some of the things most people don't look at:
I have a whole body that works. I can eat my food through my mouth. I can talk. I have the ability to make a decesions. I can create new things. I can hear. I can help others. I can see. I have people who love me. I can breath normal.
These are just the starters of things to be thankful for. Lets see what the Bible says about complaining. Most of us know that Moses lead his people threw the wilderness, God the Father perform many wonderful works for them. However did you know that they complain. Look at the book of Number 11:1 it says Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the Lord, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the Lord burned among them and comsumed some of the outskirts of the camp. When the people cried out to Moses, he prayed to the Lord and the fire died down. Now then the people still complain look at verse4 it says The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, If only we had meat to eat! Remenber that God was feeding them with manna from Heaven. What a wonderful grace to be feed from Heaven.
Futher in the chapter at verse 31 it says Now a wind out from the Lord and drove quail in from the sea. It brought them down all around the camp to about three feet above the ground as far as a day's walk in any direction. All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers. Then they spread them out all around the camp. But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the Lord burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. So what does this tell us. I think it tell us to be thankful of everything, nor matter of what we have or how much or how little. God says I will take care of you, and that to believe and trust in him.
