The Bible says we should give thanks in all things (1 Thessalonians 5:18). God did not cause the roof to leak; give God thanks that you have a house on which a roof can sit. God did not give you cancer; give God thanks for the skillful and compassionate care of oncologists and nurses. God did not cancel the baseball season; thank God for the many other entertainment opportunities you have. God did not cause so-and-so to say bad things about you; be grateful for the true friends you have. You get the idea!
- Psalm 1:4 - 12:16
