“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

– 1 Thessalonians 5:18

As we’ve been talking about, thankful people are world changers; their lives are magnets for miracles! Those who live in gratitude are setting up a huge realm of opportunity, blessing and possibility for their future. However, the opposite is also true.

Thankless people always live in lack and will never have enough. A thankless person is a hurtful person. You see, there are two types of sin: sins of commission and sins of omission. Sins of commission are things that you do. If you stab someone, rob a bank or flip someone off, you have committed a sin of commission. On the contrary, sins of omission are the things we don’t do that hurt people, like forms of neglect. When you stonewall your spouse because you’re angry, or you get cold towards your neighbor because they’ve offended you, you are committing a sin of omission. Perhaps the most grievous sin of omission is failing to thank someone when they’ve done something nice for you; it’s an attitude of entitlement that expects others to cater to you, take care of you or meet your needs. This is why it’s super-important that we become the kind of people who notice even the smallest things that others do for us and make it a habit of being thankful for all our blessings. Start practicing gratitude today and watch your life turn around!
