For many generations parents have been telling their children, “Now remember to say ‘Thank you’”. I think even Adam and Eve had to tell their children to say thank you. Certainly they taught their children to say thank you to God – the offerings they made in Genesis chapter 4 were intended to be just that, a thank you to God.

First, I need to explain the theme printed in the bulletin, “It is good to be content . . . with friends.” I do not mean to say that with you need to be content with the friends you have even if they are a little less than desirable. No, what I mean is that we can be content no matter what we have and while we are content God gives us our fellow Christians with whom we can enjoy our contentedness.
