I just heard an account about a woman who was at an intersection where a homeless man with arm braces was standing with a cup, asking for assistance. After giving him what little bit of change she had in her wallet, rather than a mumbled "thanks" like she said she normally hears, this man lifted his braced arms up to heaven & gave thanks aloud to God, & not hastily either, as he continued to praise & give Him thanks even long after she pulled off. She said she was moved to tears, unable to control what she felt in her heart, even the conviction for not having a grateful heart for so many things.
What an attitude of gratitude this man displayed! May we all stop a moment & give Him the praise for ALL the things He has done & is doing for us. Even if He never gave us anything materialistic, the wondrous gift of salvation is the greatest gift of all. I am thankful for Jesus, for my wonderful family & friends, & for all He is to me.
