Gratitude

🔥 The Quality Of Thankfulness

Gratitude – the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

What is the the quality of your Thankfulness?…

Are you consistently in a state of readiness to return kindness shown to you?…

Or are you so blocked by bitternes and resentment you cannot see where kindness has been freely given to you…

Do you continue to control your opinions of others through judgment of their defects of character…

Do you continue to resent those who have wronged you?…

It is impossible to experience gratitude when your attitude towards life is filtered through a selfish and self-centered perspective.

It is impossible to express thankfulness and return kindness when you make everything about you.

The absence of a self-directed life…

Gratitude = A God-directed life…

Every day is a day when we must carry the vision of God’s will into all of our activities. “How can I best serve Thee—Thy will (not mine) be done.” These are thoughts which must go with us constantly. – The Big Book P85

After all is life not about what you can give and not what you can take?.

Paul
