Davidisms - Develop an Attitude of Gratitude
You are what you think. As you think, you are. It’s a truth repeated throughout the Bible. “Be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (Rom. 12:2). “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things” (Phil. 4:8). “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth” (Col. 3:2). What these Scriptures teach us is to develop God’s way to think. More specifically, to form a pattern of thanksgiving. An attitude of gratitude. When we regularly think thoughts of thanks, we acknowledge - with deep humility - that all we have is a gift from God. The greatest of which is the gift of eternal life. Given to us as an unable-to-be-reciprocated gift from God. Set your mind on all that God has given to you. Then you’ll develop an attitude of gratitude. When you do so, you will never be the same.
