We Had It Better When...

Growing in Gratitude - This Sunday we begin a six-week series about thankfulness. Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 to be thankful always for this is God's will for us who are in Jesus Christ. We begin our study of gratitude with a look at Israel wandering in the wilderness and crying out for water, and repeating the refrain we heard when they first ran into trouble on the edge of the Red Sea, "We'd have been better off if we'd stayed in Egypt." (Krabbe paraphrase. See Ex 17:3) Were they better off in Egypt? Have you ever wished to go back to a time in the past?
