An Attitude of Gratitude

“Grace is the expression of his love.”- Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel

Reflect on grace a moment.  Picture where you would be without grace at work in your life. 

Grace gave you an opportunity to be accepted by God beyond anything that you could ever offer God.  You have received grace, so your attitude should go beyond saying that you are grateful.  You should have an attitude of gratitude.

What does an attitude of gratitude look like?

Start by showing grace towards others.  Somebody’s wronged you.  Before you jump up and seek righteous vengeance, reflect back on grace.  In particular, think of the grace that God showed you.  You surely have wronged God one way or another.  That is called sin.  He did not take you out.  He responded with grace and love, forgiveness and mercy.  Show grace towards others as it has been shown to you.

Domonstrate your gratitude by starting with your attitude.
