I am thankful for the family God gave me, for the work Jesus gave me, for the health… however the most important thing to be thankful is to always remember and meditate the salvation in Jesus Christ. Being thankful is not just a attidute of life, but a fruit of re-borned new life.
For the non-believers don’t know God, so they also have no thanks to God. Everyday we should check our heart, whether we are thankful is like instruction to help me to know the status of our faith in God. If I believe God, I will know all the good I got is because of God’s grace, it is not by chance, then I will be thankful. If I believe God, I will know God is working for me, God is saving the world, I will have hope and be thankful. If I believe God, I will be always thankful because I am a true sinner, but Jesus loves me unconditionally. My soul can get peace and joy in Jesus everyday.
If I lost the heart of thankfulness, the wrong thoughts and emotion will come. I will ignore the grace and think what I got is what I deserved, and I should get more what I think I should get. The heart will become arrogant. The life will become self-centered and all the focus is me, me, me…It will be very terrible life. May God help me and help all of us to follow the example of Jesus, being gentle and humble. And also be thankful.
