It's nearly impossible for us to be content and enjoy what we have...unless of course we have cultivated "a spirit of gratitude".
Have we ever witnessed a child throwing a tantrum because the gift we gave them isn't the one they wanted?
Have we ever been blessed with genuine thankfulness for a gift that we gave to someone who truly treasured what we gave?
Now, let's apply these two contrasting reactions to our current financial situation. Are we thankful for what God has given to us, or are we on the verge of a "hissy fit"?
Now, let God's Word speak to us:
* The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
* Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
* Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father
of the heavenly lights, Who does not change like shifting shadows.
