We always have reason to worship

Our final verse tells us that thankfulness is a key part of worship. Gratitude reminds us of the powerful truth that God is the source of life and every good gift, and he is eternally worthy of worship. Can we really give thanks always and for everything as Paul commands though? Our verse reminds us that we come to a loving Father who comforts us when life is hard and will ultimately heal and redeem every difficulty. When we look to the cross we do indeed find reason to give thanks always and for everything!
