'GIVING HIM THANKS'

"O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endures for ever" - Psalm 107:1
.
Why should I give God thanks? Because He is good. The fact that He created you and made you alive is a token of His goodness.
.
Why should I give Him thanks? For making you to see yesterday, today and with the assurance of tomorrow. Not everyone that witnessed the end of yesterday will see the end of today and tomorrow's end likewise.

Why should I give Him thanks? Because of your past, present and future. Your past may not be better but today is better than your past. You should also thank Him because the future will be greater.
.
Why should I thank Him? That you go out of your house everyday and return safely is because of His goodness (Ps. 121:8). Out of His goodness, He sustained you while you sleep and wake (Ps. 3:5).
.
You can't separate God's goodness from His mercy. It is only a man that is good that can be merciful. It is better to experience His goodness than to experience His wrath. Naomi experienced the other side of life (Ruth 1:20-21).

When a man doesn't see the goodness of God, all things will work against His life. Won't you rather thank God because He is good?
.
Why should I give Him thanks? Because He is good to you, as a result of this, He showed you kindness, love, favor and mercy even when you do not deserve them (Rom. 5:8).
.
To give Him thanks is to appreciate what He has done, what He is doing and what He will do. And only a deep thinker can be full of gratitude and also give Him thanks.
.
There are numerous reasons why God is good. You are only limited to thank Him for His goodness to the extent that you can think of His goodness.
.
Are you grateful or an ingrate?
