Multitude Monday, Take 357

"Gratitude gladly receives whatever God supplies, taking the good with cheerfulness and the hardship with a deep sense of sorrowful-yet-always-rejoicing. Gratitude knows that God is honored in the glad reception of wonderful gifts and in the deep, unshakeable satisfaction in God when the wonderful gifts are gone. And gratitude loves to display the worth and value of the giver of all good gifts and all severe mercies."
--Joe Rigney, The Things of Earth
