Choosing Gratitude Day 8

Gratitude is of a humble heart. A gratitude heart is happy with what, they have and realize they are not entitle to anything. Being ungrateful is out of a proud heart. Ungrateful heart, is more likely to complain, become resentful and be wrapped in themselves.

Something to thing about: How does your complaining manifest a spirit of pride, entitlement, and expectations?

James 4:6-10 (English Standard Version)
6But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
