Normally, we don’t say thank you until we receive something. But faith says thank you before it receives.
In Africa, there is a fruit called the “taste berry,” because it changes a person's taste buds in such a way that everything eaten after it, tastes sweet.
Giving thanks is the “taste berry” of Christianity. When our hearts are full of gratitude, nothing that follows will be able to defeat us!
"Truly grateful people can't be stopped. They bubble and overflow, refreshing others. Their habitual gratitude serves as a springboard to give a reason for the buoyant hope bouncing within them. They attract those who are stuck in the cares of this world and woo them to the eternal Good.” [Ellen Vaughn]
Let’s give thanks and let our gratitude shine to those around us!
