Live Every Day with an Attitude of Gratitude

1 min read


In Deuteronomy 10–12, God was taking the children of Israel into the Promised Land and describing all the wonderful gifts and abundance He was freely giving them. He said, "I'm giving you houses filled with great treasure so you can live in them. I'm giving you vineyards you didn't plant and fields you didn't plow so you can work them and enjoy the produce." But then He warned them, "I'm giving you all these things, but don't take them for granted. Don't forget who gave it to you. Honor Me in it."

We all should have the gifts and abundance in our life through appreciation. God has given us a great country to live in. He has given us family, friends, houses, places to work, and worship. Don't take them for granted and start complaining about present hardships.

Of course we all are facing challenges in our life,Things are not easy as we think, But we should always learn some lessons in what we are experiencing right now, when we begin to look for what can build our character, when we see the treasure in the people we love, that's when we are going to find the value and the purpose.

When we appreciate God, we appreciate the things God has given us, we give Him thanks and we honor Him. Appreciation is a language that we need to learn and gratitude always honors God. That's why, wherever you are today, no matter how difficult it is, ask God to show you, " Value in each thing and how can I appreciate it?" 

Happy people are the ones who can be appreciative of what they have right now rather than thinking about what they dont have in their Life. Do not compare yourself with others because God has different plans to bless each one of us in a different way.Amen.
