Jesus’ healing of the ten lepers in Luke 17 gives us an example of how highly God values gratitude. His question in verse 17 reveals His disappointment at the ingratitude of the majority, “And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?”(verse 17)
2 Timothy 3:2 describes what people will be like in the last days, and one clear characteristic is unthankfulness.
When pride and self-rule become fashionable, the human heart becomes selfish. We become convinced of our own entitlement or supremacy and consider all we have as a just reward for our efforts. We would be wise to remember the Apostle Paul’s questions, “For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?” (1 Corinthians 4:7)
Thankfulness: the more you choose it, the easier it gets. Cultivate a life that is thankful, take the time to notice and reflect upon the things you’re grateful for. Shakespeare said, “O Lord that lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.” Learn to give thanks and be appreciative, for the more thankful you are the more life you truly live.
Live by faith, walk in his Spirit, be grateful and gave a BLESSED day!
