And Be Thankful
I was reading in my new favorite blog, Kate & Kuby (more on them later) about the best way to fight worldliness is with thankfulness. And I realized that so much of my day is filled with bitterness, grumpiness, sourness, and anger rather than joy, peace, kindness, and love. But how easily my attitude changes when I begin to focus on things that I am thankful for.
This might be why Paul mentions thankfulness three times in his Colossians 3:12-21 passage on characteristics we should put on. More than any other attribute, Christians should be thankful.
Oh Lord, please help my heart to change from complaining about everything to rejoicing always and giving thanks in all circumstances. Remind me how much I have been given. And help me find joy in You and what you have done.
