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
Overview: 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.
