Gratitude is a difficult idea for most people to understand. And when Jesus cured ten people, only one came back to thank him. It clearly demonstrates the entitlement mindset of many people, as well as the ingratitude of the vast majority. But, if you can't be grateful for what you have, how can you be grateful for what you don't have? Here are five reasons why you should still be thankful to God, no matter what your circumstances are. -
1. IT'S A COMMANDMENT
In the Bible, God commands us to be thankful all of the time. Gratitude isn't something you can choose to do. It's a commandment from the Almighty himself. It should be something you do every day, no matter what you're going through.
You should always express gratitude to God for the fact that you are alive and have life in you. Many people have lost their lives because of the very life you take for granted. You should be grateful to God if you still have it.
Too many people are fortunate, and one example is the fact that you have a phone and internet access to read this post. There are so many people who are poor who do not have access to this. You should give thanks to God for these blessings.
There is hope where there is life. There is hope for a change no matter how hopeless a situation seems to be. As long as there is life and you believe in God, there is hope for a change. This is something you should thank God for.
Every day, we hear about one bombing after another, one killing after another, and one death after another. You, on the other hand, have been spared by God. You would not have had time to read this article if a bomb had detonated near you. You should be grateful to God that you are safe from these everyday occurrences and evils. It is enough to be grateful for life. God does not need our assistance. We are in desperate need of Him. If you don't thank Him, He'll lift stones to finish the job for you. So begin by thanking the God who has the power to undo the inevitable and make the impossible possible.
