HOW ROBINSON CRUSOE GIVES THANKS


The apostle Paul didn’t say to give thanks “for” all circumstances, but “in” all circumstances. All our circumstances in life are not good, but there will always be something in those circumstances for which to give thanks.


When Robinson Crusoe was shipwrecked on a lonely island he thought of both the good and the bad.

- He was cast onto a desolate island, but he was still alive, not drowned as all of his ship’s company was.

- He was divided from mankind, but he was not starving.

- He had no clothes, but he was in a hot climate where he didn’t need them.

- He was without means of defense, but he saw no wild animals.

- He had nothing to speak of, but God had sent the ship so near to the shore that he could get out of it all things necessary for his survival.


So he concluded that there was not any condition in the world so miserable but that there was something positive for which to be thankful.
