Gratitude #3

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others. (Cicero, first century BC Roman statesman)

Don’t wait until Thanksgiving Day next week to express your thankfulness for all you have and experience today. If Cicero was right, all of the virtues we want our lives to display will begin with an attitude of gratitude. It would be a good exercise to remember the words of an old hymn, “Count your many blessings, name them one by one.”

For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude. (1 Timothy 4:4)
