Developing An Attitude Of Gratitude

Godly gratitude is much more than in idea, or a word phrase. It's a habit, an attitude, a conscious choice to be truly thankful for all life brings, good or not so good. It's a way of living that graciously repays the debt of love and blessings God bestows on us. It's a way of living and thanking that shows we realize we are citizens of a spiritual kingdom, and that we have "a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens," waiting for us.

We may be ungrateful ...

  • Because of affluence
  • Because if pride
  • Because of who we associate with
  • Because of circumstances

We can develop an attitude of gratitude by ...

  • Remembering how muchgratitude pleases God
  • Avoiding complaining at all costs
  • Making the personal choice to rejoice
  • Developing the discipline of giving thanks
