Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

The Saint ends his first letter to the Thessalonians with a rapid fire of little commandments. We often get lost and try to make walking in the faith much more difficult than it is. Instead of keeping it simple we add commandment on top of commandment.

Instead, the saint says - Rejoice, Pray, Give thanks. Go out into the world today, and remember to pray always, talking to the Lord, rejoicing for every good thing, and learning to have a grateful heart.
