Attitude of GratitudeOctober 3, 2020
Winston Churchill is quoted as saying, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” The degree to which we can effectively nurture an Attitude of Gratitude will have enormously positive effects on our entire being; mind, body, and soul. We also know that cultivating this Attitude of Gratitude is a lifelong process of growing into maturity. If you have ever planted a tree and been able to witness its lifetime of growth, perhaps you understand the patience required and the ultimate satisfaction of the fully matured tree. At the same time, this fully matured tree offers benefits of shade, oxygen production, entertainment, and perhaps even fruit. The Apostle Paul thanked the Macedonian church for their gracious gift to the church in Jerusalem, knowing all too well that the origins of this gift did not come from their pockets, but from the seedlings of gratitude that had sprouted into trees of generosity. They gave what they could and even more because they first were grateful for what they had. Somehow they cultivated, first in their hearts, an Attitude of Gratitude. Join us for our three-week worship series, "Attitude of Gratitude: Maturing into a Cheerful Giver" beginning the weekend of October 3rd and 4th.
