Half Full vs. Half Empty

To give thanks, or not, that is the question. How you answer that question says more about your faith than it does about your life’s circumstances.

The pilgrims lost over half of their original number in that first year in this new home of America. Their hardships warranted sorrow and frustration, both with their circumstances and with God. But rather than bemoan their troubles, they gathered together to thank God for the many blessings that He had bestowed upon them. They were obviously “half full” people.

What are you? Do you focus on the bane in your life, or the blessings? Do you get angry at God for what He hasn’t given you, or do you thank Him for all that He has given you? Do you see the glass as half full or half empty when it comes to your life in God?

This sermon will help you understand why you can be thankful in all circumstances. By God’s grace and love, you will learn how and why to become a “half full” type of person.
