Being Grateful to the Lord

A heart that does not have gratitude is like a grate that is filled with fuel but I never lighted, a dead and empty thing. We can say that in this modern life, ingratitude is a responsibility of gratitude is with God. We should all be grateful to God and bow our heads to thank Him for everything that we need as a sign of gratitude. God showed us the example of this when He took seven loaves and fish and He broke it into pieces as He had given thanks.

Jonah 2:4-10
I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’ 5 The waters surrounded me, even to the soul. The deep was around me.The weeds were wrapped around my head. 6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains.The earth barred me in forever: yet have you brought up my life from the pit, Yahweh my God. 7 “When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Yahweh. My prayer came in to you, into your holy temple. 8 Those who regard lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 9 But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving. I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation belongs to Yahweh.” 10 Yahweh spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah on the dry land.

Gratitude is primarily focused on giving and not receiving.There is one occasion that Christ healed several lepers but only one came back to say thanks and express the appreciation that he feels. We are often like other lepers who forget and do not bother to get back to Him and say thanks.God meets our needs undertake on our behalf and we go out happily on our way but never bothering to stop for us to express gratitude towards Him.
