WE BELIEVE GRATITUDE IS THE SECRET TO LIVING A FULL LIFE AND THAT INGRATITUDE AS AT THE CORE OF ALL SIN.

It goes all the way back before mankind, to the fall of Lucifer. The Bible describes him as a spectacular, creative being (Ezekiel 28:12-15). All God gifted him with was not enough and his ungratefulness got him cast down to hell (Isaiah 14:12-15).

In the Garden of Eden, Satan sank his venom into the hearts of Adam and Eve. They had beauty, provision and companionship, but gave in to temptation, taking a bite of the apple in search of something other than what God had given. Ingratitude got them kicked out of paradise.

The consequences of ingratitude were cataclysmic.

All the pain and suffering inflicted on our world has its roots in ingratitude. Greed, lust, lying and addiction are an attempt to fill the emptiness of dissatisfaction. In this futile quest for more, we lose sight of the good, good life around us.

If paradise is lost with ingratitude, there is a way to regain the joy and fulfillment we long for—GRATITUDE!

Becoming a grateful person is one of the most emotionally satisfying, spiritually energizing things you can do.

We discover a new way of living in the words Jesus spoke at the last meal He shared with His followers:

And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and gave it to them…
// LUKE 22:19

In the original language the word for “gave thanks” is the Greek word “eucharisteo.” It comes from two other Greek words, “charis” which means grace or gift and “chara” which means deep satisfying joy.

So in the original language, that small phrase would sound more like this: He took the bread and knew it to be a gift from God and He gave thanks and it produced deep, satisfying joy.

GRATITUDE PRODUCES JOY!

There is a rhythm in “eucharisteo” that can transform our lives:

• See the gifts of God’s grace.
• Give thanks.
• Experience deep, soul-satisfying joy.

moving people closer to the heart of God.

ARE YOU THE KIND OF PERSON WHO GETS TIRED OF TURKEY AND DRESSING? OR ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR THE LEFTOVERS? AS WE PREPARE TO WRAP UP 2019, WE WANT TO INSPIRE YOU TO THANK GOD FOR THE LEFTOVERS.

THANK GOD FOR LEFTOVER PROVISION—God is not the God of just enough. He is the God of more than enough. Remember when Jesus miraculously fed 5,000 people? They each had plenty to eat, but then the disciples gathered loads of leftovers!

And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
// MATTHEW 14:20-21

While we’re thinking about food, we need protein, carbohydrates, fats and water, but aren’t you grateful for the variety of tastes, textures, flavors and combinations? God didn’t just meet our needs, He gave us so much more to enjoy.

THANK GOD FOR LEFTOVER GRACE—God’s grace is a massive overpayment for our sin.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
// EPHESIANS 2:4-7

God’s grace is incomparable. Nothing in our experience comes close. We will never exhaust the riches of God’s grace.

THANK GOD FOR LEFTOVER FAMILY—Let’s face it, family dynamics can be more than a little dysfunctional. We love our biological families, but aren’t you glad you are also members of God’s family? God provides brothers and sisters in Christ! He fills in the gaps that our families leave gaping wide.

THANK GOD FOR LEFTOVER POWER—There is more than enough power available for us to live the life God calls us to. More than you could ask, think or imagine! (Ephesians 3:20-21)

THANK GOD FOR LEFTOVERS IN THE LACK—You may be thinking, I don’t see God’s abundance or generosity. We all face difficulty, but God promises He is with us each step of the way. Look again with eyes of faith. Look for one, small thing to be grateful for. Look for the silver lining. When you look up, miracles happen.

Look for the gifts God gives and you will find peace, hope and joy.
