Random Thoughts on: Living The Thankful Life

Think about these sayings for a moment:

Gimme, gimme never gets.
They're always taking and never satisfied, no matter how much they receive.

"So, what's wrong with you?"
When someone asks that question it puts your focus on "wrong" things.

Proverbs 15:15
All the days of the oppressed are wretched,
but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.

A cheerful heart does not look at negatives. They are focused on the positive.

A thankful person always has enough because they spend so much time counting their blessings they don't have time left to focus on what they don't have.

Be thankful.
Start thanking others for what they've done.
Start thanking God for what He's done.

Giving thanks is kind of like giving a receipt to someone who's purchased something.
You giving them a receipt says "I've received the money you were giving for this item."
Giving thanks to God or a person is like giving them a receipt saying, "I received what you gave me."

Being thankful is so much better than complaining.
Try you'll like it. And so will those around you.
