Gratitude seems to be one of those things that should come naturally. But, actually, it doesn’t. What comes naturally is jealousy, greed, envy, self-pity, and resentment. God offers us forgiveness, companionship, grace, what we need to eat, beauty, strength, and Himself – and yet without the discipline of gratitude, all we’ll see is what others are and have – and what we aren’t and what we don’t have. Unchecked over time, we’ll end up in a deep abyss of self-pity. And if we don’t climb out… we’ll miss the goodness of God. We’ll miss the life He has promised to those who trust in Him. So let’s start climbing – together!
