Giving Thanks The Key To Contentment


Pastor's Sermon Points 11/19/17



Scripture Text: First Timothy 6:6-10

Subject: Giving Thanks The Key To Contentment

INTRODUCTION:  Maybe as we get ready to make this mad holiday run from the middle of November to the end of the year; maybe, just maybe we need to pull up for a moment and reset our reality meter.

We might do well this morning to  refocus our attention; hit the refresh button on our thought processes, and regain the proper perspective as it relates to our attitude of gratitude.

For the songwriter asked the question: "If it had not been for the Lord on my side - tell me where would I be?"

Every now and then it's just good to count your blessings; count them one by one and see what great things that the Lord has done!

I don't know what your testimony is this morning; I dare not try to speak for you; don't want to try and put words in your mouth; but I need to tell you that the Lord just keeps on blessings me; over and over again!
