Ephesians 5:20-21 says, “Giving thanks always for all things unto God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.”
There are four levels of life:
1. There are those people who are constantly complaining and grumbling. Have you met any of these folks? They can brighten up a room just by leaving it. That’s the lowest level.
2. Next, there are people who live an ungrateful life. They don’t complain, but they never thank God for His obvious blessings. That’s a little better, but not much.
3. Then there are people who thank God for obvious blessings. When something good happens, they’re grateful. That’s a better level.
4. The highest level is to be grateful for all things at all times. That is the secret of a happy and productive life.
