Half Empty? Or Half Full?
(3/7/10)

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” -- Philippians 4:8

I. Why do some Asian Christians see the glass as half ___________ rather than half full?

II. We are called to a life of giving ______________ to God.

“15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” -- Colossians 3:15-17

A. Thankfulness supports ______________ as we experience the peace of Christ (3:15).

B. Thankfulness supports our ministry of God’s ___________ to one another (3:16).

C. Thankfulness supports our entire life of doing everything for the ___________ of God (3:17).

III. How can we cultivate a more ______________________ spirit and attitude?

- giving thanks before each meal

- write at least one note, email per week sharing thanks to someone

- journal praises and thanksgiving

- spend time with others who have a thankful spirit
