Message: Let us express our gratitude and joy for God’s help through our conduct and actions.
- When God leads us out of a hopeless situation, we are to show Him our gratitude and joy.
- Gratitude also comes to expression when we worship God, obey His will, and help our neighbour in difficult situations.
- Even if our neighbour’s way of doing things or his attitude do not always please us, we should be tolerant and not try to give the impression that our own prejudices are an expression of the will of God.
