“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” ~ Romans 1:21 KJV……
The Apostle Paul in talking about the downfall of a society listed being unthankful as one of the reasons. Whatever we cease being thankful for will eventually leave our lives. Whenever a society stops being thankful for the blessing of God then that blessing starts to leave that nation. While it may not disappear overnight it will eventually begin to diminish.
As believers we need to remain thankful to God for all He has blessed us with. Let Him know you’re thankful. I make a practice of thanking God everyday for all the spiritual and all the natural blessings He has bestowed upon my life. I never want to take for granted all that I’m blessed with. I thank Him for everything from my salvation to the food on my table.
When we choose to live a life of thanksgiving it will cut back on murmuring and complaining and our lives will be much richer and filled with the peace of God! “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.” ~ Colossians 2:6-7
