Collectively - Things to be thankful for as a church

Overview of what our church has given to global mission this year:
-We give $12000 to the SB Convention Cooperative program
-We give $13200 to Pais Movement Global
-We give $7200 to Wycliffe / Seed Company

What does it look like to have a thankful attitude when things don’t quite go the way we want them to?

Ephesians 5:20 - “Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus

1 Thessalonians 5:18 - “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Psalm 116:17 - “I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the Lord.”

Phil 4:10-13 - “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.”
Contentment versus Comparison

One of our biggest challenges to contentment is comparison.

Comparison stinks! It robs you of your joy and gratitude! It makes you less thankful.

But maybe worse – Comparison stops us from being generous

Comparison leads to discontentment leads to selfishness

Do we really know what it means to be in need?

Your glass is fuller then you think.

we are more likely to compare our situation with the millionaires in this world than the millions that are in poverty.

Nearly 1 out of every 10 people in the world lives below the international poverty line. That’s 689 million
people struggling to survive on less than $1.90 a day.

And nearly 2 billion people, or 26.2% of the world’s population, live on less than $3.20 a day.


Hebrews 13:16 - “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to

Luke 12:33-34 - “Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do
not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth
destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Proverbs 28:27 - “Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a

Proverbs 21:13 - “Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.”


Proverbs 11:24-25 - “One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and
only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.”

Proverbs 19:17 - “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”
