Thank You; You’re Welcome

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 22, 2018

DOES IT SEEM TO YOU THAT THE NOTION OF THANKFULNESS HAS VIRTUALLY DISAPPEARED FROM MODERN CULTURE? IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SAID “THANK YOU” TO SOMEONE ONLY TO HAVE THEM RESPOND “NO PROBLEM”? WHATEVER HAPPENED TO “YOU’RE WELCOME,” THE RESPONSE I WAS BROUGHT UP WITH?

WE IN AMERICA HAVE SO MUCH FOR WHICH TO BE THANKFUL AND I’M NOT JUST SPEAKING OF FREEDOM. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO WORSHIP OUR GOD AS WE PLEASE AND TO TELL OTHERS ABOUT HIM. OTHER COUNTRIES – ESPECIALLY MOST MUSLIM COUNTRIES – FORBID THAT AND BAN ANY BIBLES FROM THEIR MIDST.

WE HAVE THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS AND WHILE INDIVIDUAL REPORTERS CAN IRRITATE, EVEN INFURIATE AT TIMES, A FREE PRESS IS ESSENTIAL TO A HEALTHY DEMOCRACY.

SO IN THE MIDST OF SO MUCH THAT IS IRRITATING AND FRUSTRATING, BE THANKFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE THIS THANKSGIVING AND BE SURE TO THANK GOD FOR HIS INFINITE GRACE AND MERCY TOWARDS US SINNERS. HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I’M CAL THOMAS.
