Good Morning

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,  to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Which comes first-
the gift,
or the spirit of thanksgiving?
Common wisdom says that we get the gift first,
then we say thank you for receiving it.
While that is true,
some gifts will never be recognized
or received without a spirit of thanksgiving.

How many people sabotage the blessings in their life
because of a crummy attitude?
They are dissatisfied and disappointed–
and let the world know it–
despite a plethora of gifts from God
and others around them.

All of us can be thankful for the many things
God has done for us.
But there may be deeper levels of spirituality–
even more of His nature and goodness–
that we can experience through the attitude of gratitude.
Have you said thank you to God today?

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always]  Amplified Bible

Be thankful . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
