1 Thessalonians 5:18 says to give thanks in everything. Is that even possible? In everything? According to the Bible, it is possible. This single lesson shares how Paul and Silas were able to give thanks in the worst of circumstances (Acts 16) and the good that came out of it. This lesson uses an object lesson, hands-on activity, science object lesson, memory verse, and more to help children learn how and why they should give thanks in every circumstance. It is designed for a 90-minute time period but can be trimmed to fit your time schedule.
