Here at ym360, we love giving away resources that can encourage and support you. It flows from our desire to equip and serve youth workers. So thanks for the opportunity!

Lesson Title: Thankful In All Things

Lesson Objective:
To help students understand that a thankful heart involves more than just words and thoughts; it's a spiritual attitude that develops when we learn to give God thanks for all things.

Scripture Focus:
Psalm 100 and 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18   

Thanksgiving is unique among holidays in that it provides a time to pause and reflect on the things for which we should be thankful. As youth pastors and youth workers, we often use this special holiday as an opportunity to teach students the need to be thankful for the things they have, and to show thanks to God for all of the blessings He sends their way. In this lesson you'll lead your students to learn that true thankfulness is expressed in more than just words, and definitely goes beyond a single day. A spiritual "attitude of gratitude" develops when we learn to give thanks in all things.

What's Included?
Lesson/Teaching Plan, Student Hand Out, PowerPoint Slideshow

Wow! God is always proving He is in EVERYTHING. My student leader leads a worship service the second Sunday night of each month. She reminded me yesterday that she would not be here this Sunday. So I thought "I'll do something on Thanksgiving" Today I open my mail and there is a lesson ( no 4 lessons!!!) God is soooo good! See you in Nashville!
by: Rick November 5, 2013 11:09 am
That's awesome, Rick. So thankful we could help out. And, yes, we'll see you in Nashville! Take care.
