Christian Reflections

Gratitude

Jesus spoke up, “There were ten men who were healed; where are the other nine?” -Luke 17:17

-Luke 17:17

In all the gifts that God gives us, are we really grateful? As we ourselves are gifts of God, we can add a profound dimension to the way we understand ourselves, other people, the world around us if we are grateful for all that we have.

My reflections from reading Focus Your Day by Kenneth E. Grabner, C.S.C.

In our everyday life, God usually reveals himself in ordinary ways. Dandelions are more prevalent than roses but are the bees first food in the spring. The sun rises and sets every day but if we really look at the colors that shine forth from such events, we can see and hear God, if we really listen and look. If we are always waiting for someone or something else, we will miss out on events that can change us or that can have us meet God.
