In ALL things give thanks

Why does the Apostle Paul tell us to be thankful, or to give thanks in everything?  1 Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:20; Colossians 3:17; 2 Thessalonians 2:13

Giving thanks in everything includes persecution, being put down, being happy, being sad, being sick, being tired, depressed :  both in good times and in bad times.

Why?

Romans 5:And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Romans 12:12 – Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
