Why Should Your Essay Contain a Thesis Statement? to test your ideas by distilling them into a sentence or two, to better organize and develop your argument, to provide your reader with a "guide" to your argument. In general, your thesis statement will accomplish these goals if you think of the thesis as the answer to the question your paper explores.
Compare the original thesis (not specific and clear enough) with the revised version (much more specific and clear): Original thesis: Although the timber wolf is a timid and gentle animal, it is being systematically exterminated.

Revised thesis: Although the timber wolf is actually a timid and gentle animal, it is being systematically exterminated because people wrongfully believe it to be a fierce and cold_blooded killer.
