Do you give thanks for the times in which you have been healed in your body? When you get a cold, you perhaps already leap ahead to assuming that you’re going to get better. But it’s only because of the Lord Jesus that you can be healed of a cold and so give thanks, if you have been healed from a cold, or if you’ve been healed from something much more serious, give thanks.
It comes from a place of humility. I find it very helpful to look at my life and to think, “Wow, who am I to receive such things? I am no one; I deserve nothing. Yet here I have this. Thank you, thank you.”
And then this is a particular note for those of you who are married, especially to husbands…
Do you thank your wives? As husbands, you must give thanks to your wives, that’s a good way of obeying the command of Ephesians to love your wives.
Similarly, children, you must give thanks to your parents, it’s one of the best ways to honour them, as you are commanded to do in the Ten Commandments.
 Ephesians 5:28, “In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.”
 Exodus 20:12, “Honour your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”
