Fr. Mike Schmitz, Ascension Presents, Jan 17, 2018
St. Paul wrote to the Thessalonians, “In all things give thanks” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). In this video, Fr. Mike shows us how to live up to that challenge, helping us to see that everything we complain about can be viewed as an opportunity to praise God. This isn’t just good advice. It is what’s required of us as Christians. Sure, we will have times when we need to vent to a confidant; but—as Fr. Mike suggests—keeping our complaining to a minimum is a great way to prove we are striving to do God’s will.
