Sermon Notes:  Attitude of Gratitude     

It takes 3 things to have an Attitude of Gratitude.  

The Expression of Gratitude.    We should express our thanks to God and to others.  

OUR Attitude of Gratitude SHOULD BE EXPANSIVE   When we focus on what we don’t have, then we fail to see ALL that we DO have.    

OUR Attitude of Gratitude IS EXPECTED    When we realize how blessed we are by God and express that - we are growing.    

Someone has said that for Thanksgiving to be real, There must be "Thanks" and there must be "Giving."  

We need to ask ourselves if we are truly thankful.  

Because Gratitude is a mark of a growing And if you are thankful to God then you will be glowing.  

You will not be constantly critical and pessimistic but eternally Grateful.
