Gratitude leads to nobler service...
Gratitude leads to nobler service. As I count God's mercies in the past, I am led in sincerity to greater love and obedience in the days to come. So God, through Moses and the prophets, continually reminded His people of His past mercies and deliverances as assurances of the future. And these mercies were national as well as personal.
So we may well count the blessings of His "merciful providence bestowed upon this nation and people," while we recall the many gifts which have made each one of us happier and better. Yea, and so we seek to care for others as a result of God's goodness to us.
The gifts shared are the gifts appreciated, and the blessings which have brought a message from heaven find their place in the hope for the days to come only as we keep them by giving them away. "Praise God" is an anthem which stretches out loving hands to the brethren while the eyes are fixed upon the distant hills.
