It seems like gratitude is a lost virtue in our lives today. It always seems like we never have enough clothes, time or money. I’m sure we can all think of things we don’t have enough of. Being grateful seems like a good idea, but what does it really do for us?
Gratitude brings us joy. It helps us focus on what we have rather than what we lack. Complaining and grumbling can never be one with gratitude. It gives us a thankful heart which overflows with hope and keeps us from being worried and anxious.
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for those who are in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
