The Foundation of Gratitude…

The foundation of gratitude is the expectation of nothing. - Dr. Jack Hyles

In church this morning, we heard a great message on the subject of gratitude. “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV Everything we have is a gift from God. Everything we are is a gift from God.

Remember that we deserve nothing. We don’t deserve the blessings of God. We don’t deserve the saving grace of God. We don’t deserve the goodness of God. If we remember that we don’t deserve anything, than we will remember to be thankful for everything.
