Why All Should Be Thankful – Puritan William Cooper Sermons 1653
“In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you”—1 Thessalonians 5:18.
From Puritan Sermons 1659-1689, Being the Morning Exercises at Cripplegate.
“Now, a child of God is bound to be thankful to God above all men because, 1. He is more competent than any other—by acts of reason and grace too. All that the Scripture speaks as to the duty of thankfulness may be referred to these heads: 1. to know and acknowledge the Lord’s mercies.”
