I Thessalonians 5:18

Cultivating a Thankful Attitude

It is always a blessing to see thankfulness and joy expressed by pleasant expressions as seen on the faces of these students at Banjara Tribal Ministries in Hyderabad, India.

Cultivating and developing a thankful attitude is vital to a life of positive influence.  Just as the gardener must carefully check and care for the productive garden by watering and weeding the garden each day, so must one’s attitude be cared for daily.

Cultivating a thankful attitude is a daily discipline as one:

1.  Plants the seeds of thankfulness
2.  Checks for any weeds (sins) and Biblically cares for the sins
3.  Waters their life generously with the Word of God
4.  Protects their life from wrong and evil thoughts. Proverbs 4:23

A thankful-joyful attitude is vitally important and is used by God as that life is attractive, blessed, overcomes struggles victoriously and draws attention to a life anchored in the Word.

A productive garden comes from daily care, watering and pulling of weeds of sin.  So, the productive, powerful life comes from daily obedience and care based on the Word of God.
