Why Thank God For Your Life?

Preachers always ask us to thank God for our lives and so on. If you ain't got no job, no education, no health and nothing to live for here on earth while you still believe that when you die, you are going to heaven. Why thank God for your life here on earth? Is it not better you beg Him to take away your life so you can go and live with Him in heaven where there are no diseases, heart break, joblessness, economic downturn, hunger etc?. Am I missing something here because thanking God for your present sorry life means you enjoy suffering.

If you ask him to take your life, he won't, and if he do you would find your self inbetween heaven and hell(middle or mid point) lol.

All you said is true but wouldn't it be better if you ask God for death instead since you will end up in heaven which is a better place than this pathetic world?

Because when you have life, you have hope. Being alive with no job, no food, no house etc means that you could achieve all those things - and therefore God should be thanked for the chance (life) he has given us to get all these things. Being alive means that you have hope. Hope that someday job, food, house etc will perhaps one day come . . Perhaps by prayer and also making by an effort. In heaven (or hell) your fate is sealed - And it's too late to ask for anything. What do you need hope for in an eternal cycle of bliss or suffering (as the case may be)? The only logical need for hope would be to escape heaven/hell as the case may be, but with our understanding that that is the end of the end - The last bus-stop of fate itself, then hope in itself is hopeless at that point.  Take the Formular 1 Championship for example : Lewis was lagging behind halfway through the race - But the point was that he still was in the race. As long as he was still in he could try harder, and win. It didn't matter his current position, jst as long as there was a possibility that he could win. When that possibility is taken away (i.e if he quit halfway), then it would have been better than he didn't even start in the first place.

Is it not better to give thanks while begging Him to take your life so you can join Him in heaven? Why thank God for a failed life?

LLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLL

Interesting

Lovely

Nice one

Really got me happy

Non fanatistic

I love you

Thumbs up.

Now to the question:

The issue of thanks to God is very paramount, and crucial in a Christian’s life. This issue can never be overlooked.

Did you eat today? If you did that’s enough to thank him

Are you reading this from the hospital bed? If not, that’s a point for thanks giving

Do u have a mom or a dad or at least a sister or yourself being alive? Thank him

You even have 100 naira to buy time in a cyber to post this topic. Then thank him

A shelter over your head is enough reason to thank him.

Sorry if you feel I am being too personalistic towards you. You in the points represent generality .

This few point shows that God is worthy to be thanks in good and bad times, if all this bad circumstances all trail around you, then you can decide not to thank him, even if, Job still thanked him.

Once again thumbs up

Thanks
