“The most important factor in life is whether one takes life for granted or with gratitude.” Those are the words of one of the most original thinkers of the early twentieth century- G.K. Chesterton, a novelist, poet, critic and essayist. These are words of wisdom from a wise thoughtful man. We have so many things for which to be grateful. Our health, the beauty all around us, provision for our needs, friends, families, and more. But while we are giving thanks, let’s not forget our dear Heavenly Father, Who has given us the best gift of all- His Son, Jesus. John emphasized this in His gospel, writing, “…God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” And Paul encouraged people of his day with the words, “thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.” Indeed, gratitude is the best attitude.
