Having an Attitude of Gratitude 

+Being grateful is a step beyond being thankful. 

GRATEFUL: Appreciation and value shown to others and for the things we  have received from them. 

+In a practical sense someone gives you a gift and you said thank you. This is being thankful, but if the person who gives the gift, gets no appreciation and the gift that was received was abused or misappropriated, that is being ungrateful.  

Matthew 7:6 

…neither cast all of you your pearls before swine, lest they  trample them under their feet, and return and rend you. 

+Too often we are taken for granted, or we may take others for granted. 

+Be careful of those who have an attitude of entitlement. 

+Every Good thing should be received with gratitude. 

+Always give with wisdom and discernment to avoid casting your pearls before swine. 

•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him. 

•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
