Living life without thanksgiving to God is a dangerous thing. Over time, our lack of thankfulness can degrade our hearts and cause significant damage to our personality and outlook on life.
In this sermon, we look at three dangers of an ungrateful heart:
- Pride: Thankfulness brings life into perspective and leads to us to humility. It takes the focus off of ourselves and puts it onto God.
- Greed: Thankfulness and generosity go hand in hand. When we’re thankful, our focus shifts from our needs and towards the needs of others.
- Jealousy: Thankfulness gives us a spirit of contentment in the things that God has given us. We no longer look with envy at others, but find satisfaction in our portion from the Lord.
