Café Gratitude

"Gratitude is not only the greatest 
of virtuesbut the Parent of all others."

Martin Luther said gratitude was "the basic Christian virtue."

Jonathan Edwards said gratitude was one of the signs that your religion was genuine.

God destroyed the Northern kingdom because of their lack of gratitude. (Deuteronomy 28:14)

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, humility...all built on a solid foundation of a thankful heart.

The Test
The opposite of gratitude is complaining, worry, self-pity and taking everything around you for granted.
The Antidote
To help correct this attitude you may have, walk around your house and tell God, out loud, twenty things you are grateful for. Do it.

"Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the Parent of all others."

Write it down. Print it in a nice font and tape it to the mirror in your bathroom.
And on the mirror in your bedroom where you get dressed.
Write it in your journal.
....write it on the tablet of your heart.
