GRATITUDE: IT'S WAY MORE THAN AN ATTITUDE! 1. It's a decision and an action. Luke 17:15, Philippians 4:4-7, Colossians 3:17 2. It's an act of humility. Luke 17:16, Deuteronomy 8:11-17 3. It draws us closer to God. Luke 17:12 and 16, Psalm 100:4, James 4:7-10, Romans 1:21 4. It's God's will...

A man and his wife on a strict diet, sat down at the table for a meatless meal, all steamed and all green. He looked at what was before him and said, ''You say the blessing.
