Living in Thanks Giving


Scripture reference:  Philippians 4:10-13

 10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.


  1. Remember that there are PEOPLE who care.

“…you were concerned…”    v.10


  1. Be more concerned about the POSITION of others than your own.

          “I am not saying this because I am in need…”  v.11


  1. Don’t let your current PROBLEM overshadow the big PICTURE.

“I have learned the secret…” v.12


  • Things could always be WORSE.
  • There are OTHERS struggling like you.
  • This is not our HOME!
