A best selling author once challenged a group with the thought that when we forget to express our gratitude, a sense of entitlement will easily creep into our lives. And when that attitude gets a foothold, we become less generous (a nice way of saying we get a bit selfish).
Maybe it’s not a coincidence that Christmas, a time of giving, follows our time of thanks. This order reminds us that as we stay mindful of how blessed we are, we will deeply desire to be a blessing to others.
Another author said it this way …
Is the gratitude that flows out of your life as abundant as the grace that flows into you life?
So bounce these ideas around that brain of yours. Choosing gratitude will transform your life.
Glean so much from these two authors … Nancy Leigh DeMoss Wolgemuth and Tony Bridwell.
