Reflections: A Life of Gratitude

Image information appears at the end of the post.

This month is the month we celebrate Thanksgiving. I believe it is important to be thankful every day of your life. I wrote this poem (text on image above) to remind me of this point. The poem is titled Life of Gratitude. The poem text is as follows;

Take these words to heart
Live your life with gratitude
Let it drive your love

This passage in Luke chapter 7 is a reminder of this.

Luke 7:40-48 KJV — And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

When you learn to be thankful you will to love much.
