Gratitude serves – showing itself in daily life and in church life; even when it’s difficult, and even when it takes your time.
Gratitude obeys – working through the Holy Spirit, who comes alongside, teaching us to be like Christ by reminding us what Jesus said.
Gratitude loves in the way of Jesus. The driving force of love is self-sacrifice, not self-service. Gratitude truly loves.
Prayer is how we ask, seek, and knock; early and often, is how we find closeness to God, and God likes us to see that he gives.
A life of gratitude surrenders, letting God have his way with you, molding you, and crafting you into who you are meant to be.
