The Power of an Attitude of Gratitude
Gratitude is a choice. Happiness is not, but if you are grateful, it will make you happy. In Revelation 4 and 5 we see Thanksgiving in heaven surrounding the throne of God and the Lamb. As believers, we are supposed to bring heaven down to earth and our lives should be lived grateful and thankful as we keep Jesus as our center. If we push Him off of the throne and live self-centered lives, we will become ungrateful, but when we keep Jesus as our center we become grateful. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus.
