A Grateful Heart
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your loving-kindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night, On an instrument of ten strings, On the lute,
And on the harp, With harmonious sound. -Psalms 92: 1-3
A grateful heart compels more blessings. The seed you must sow for more blessings from God is a grateful heart. If you are not grateful about what God has done for you, you don’t deserve more.
When you do not train your heart to be consciously grateful for what your fellow men do for you, you may carry that attitude to God. Some people forget what God has done for them so easily. Many people forget to thank their pastors, husbands forget to appreciate their wives, some wives do not even count it honourable to say thank you to their husbands, children grew up in an unthankful atmosphere where they do not see any reason to say thank you. You must have a grateful heart. Some are too ungrateful. They complain about what they don’t have rather than thanking God for what they have. Christians who are unthankful are also unholy and filled with vain imagination. Their hearts are darkened and backslidden (Rom. 1:21).
Every ungrateful Christian is digging his or her grave for God deserves our worship. How come you are ungrateful to God? Luke 17: 16-17; 17: 17-19. God will extend his mercy to your undeserving family members because of you. Do not forget the goodness of God towards you. Grateful people are always lifted higher by Him
Prayer: Dear Father, help me to maintain an attitude of gratitude for all that you’ve done for me in Jesus name. Amen.
