When someone does something good or kind for you, it is just common courtesy to say, “Thank you”! One of the things that the Apostle Paul says will happen in the last days, is that people will become unthankful (II Tim. 3:1, 2). If someone gave you a transmitted disease, would you say thank you? I don’t think so!
The bible says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (Jas. 1:17). So let us give the Lord thanks, because He is good (Ps. 107:1), and He does not change.
Jesus was a man who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38). Sickness is not a gift from God because it is not good or perfect. Healing is a good gift, so let us always remember to thank Him. Remember the ten lepers, only one returned to give thanks for God’s goodness (Lk. 10:11 – 19). As we celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday, let us remember to thank the Lord Jesus everyday no matter what situation we may be facing, because He’s worthy (Ps. 34:18, 19; Eph. 5:20; I Thess. 5:18).
