I am reading Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s, Life Together. Here is a great quote on the need for thanksgiving in Christian community.
If we do not give thanks daily for the Christian fellowship in which we have been placed, even where there is not great experience, no discoverable riches, but much weakness, small faith and difficulty; if on the contrary, we only keep complaining to God that everything is so paltry and petty, so far from what we expected, then we hinder God from letting our fellowship grow according to the measure and riches which are there for us all in Jesus Christ.
How much time do you spend complaining about what you or your church does not have?
What are you thankful for in your community of believers?
