'Thanksgiving for God’s love.'

St. Paul wrote to his friends in Thessalonica to encourage and reassure them. He told them that God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion are all gifts for them.  We thank God for the gifts he gives us just as we thank friends for the gifts they give us.  God gives us all the gifts we need to help us to live good lives.  Read God’s Story 3 page 148 based on 1 Thessalonians 5: 12-18 (attached as a photo below).

  1. What do you think is the most important thing Paul tells the people to be?
