Giving Thanks in Everything

Matthew Henry lived more than three centuries ago. As an example of giving thanks in all circumstances (James 1:2-4), he offers this counsel:

“Let me be thankful, first, because he never robbed me before; second, because although he took my purse, he did not take my life; third, because although he took all I possessed, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed.’”
