“Gratitude is the Attitude of Giving Thanks”

“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
I Thessalonians 5:18

Our Father has blessed us by forgiving our sin and promising us eternal life and it is our privilege to remember to thank Him everyday for all His blessings. We need to cultivate the attitude of gratitude and express our thankfulness continually. As we enter this “Thanksgiving Season” remember that we need to praise Him, not only with our voices, but with our thoughts, actions, words and deeds.

A good way to cultivate the attitude of gratitude is to start each day thinking about how Good God is to us and thanking Him all day long as we experience His mercy and grace.

This will be an especially joyful Thanksgiving because we have the attitude of gratitude!
