Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in ChristWhy would Paul say that giving thanks, no matter what, is God's will? I think it's about alignment of you with God. God is good no matter what. This isn't self-help or affirmation therapy, but wisdom from God.
1 Thess. 5:18
We don't say thanks for sickness, loss, or defeat. But in all circumstances, we thank God for his goodness. No matter what happens, God is good.
