Every good and perfect gift
is from above.
Seventeenth-century British poet George Herbert, in his poem Gratefulness, wrote: “Thou that hast given so much to me, give one thing more: a grateful heart.”
Is a grateful heart a missing ingredient in your life? The solution is easy: intentional awareness of the blessings God has already given.
Today be deliberately conscious of George Herbert’s “so much” in your life: “Thou that hast given so much to me.”
“All comes from him, all lives by him, all ends in him” (Rom 11:36 Moffatt). “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father . . . (Jas 1:17). “What do you have that God hasn’t given you? (1 Cor 4:7 NLT).
He has given “so much.” The only right response is a grateful heart.
Gratitude is where happiness begins.
