Answer:
The reasons for thanksgiving are inexhaustible: some of them are:
i. Thanksgiving is a command (1Chronicles 16:8).
ii. Believer’s request should start and end with thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6).
iii. We thank God for victories over battles of life (Jonah 2:9).
iv. It is important to thank God for His mercies and divine provisions (Psalm 68:19; Micah 7:18-20).
v. Thanksgiving is offered to God for His miracles and restoration of hope (1Samuel 2:1-5; Psalm 126:1-2).
vi. The primary reason God created us in His image is for fellowship, thanksgiving, praise and joyful heart (Isaiah 43:21)

2. DANGERS OF INGRATITUDE


Question 1:
Why do some people find it difficult to show gratitude to God?


Answer:
A Ingratitude is the result of vain imagination and darkened heart. Sometimes your thanksgiving is senseless to the ordinary person but it is more profitable to be thankful than to complain (Romans 1:12; Proverbs 15:8).


B. There are several reasons people are ungrateful to God: some of which include:
i. Sin or Spiritual blindness (Ephesians 4:17-18).
ii. Refusal to take account of what God has done (Romans 1:12).
iii. Pride (Acts 12:21-23).


Question 2:
What are the dangers of ingratitude?


Answer:
Every act of ingratitude comes with it’s attendant danger.
i. Risk of losing the existing blessing, salvation and Heaven (Matthew 25:24-25, 30).
ii. Limiting one’s blessing or answered prayers (Luke 27:12-16,19).
iii. It could result in emptiness and sorrow (Proverbs 15:13; 17:22) thereby, making restoration practically difficult.


CLASS ACTIVITY 2
Students should share their experiences of when they found it difficult to thank God and how they were able to pull through.


CONCLUSION
Showing gratitude to God ensures continuous divine presence and fellowship.


CLOSING PRAYER
Father, forgive me for every act of ingratitude; give me the grace to always be thankful from today in Jesus name
