THE IMPORTANCE OF GRATITUDE

How important it is that we entertain gratitude for the protection and other blessings vouchsafed us daily by our Father-Mother God, divine Principle. Recognition of the spiritual source of all the good that we experience makes us more receptive to God's ever-operative beneficence. Gratitude, consistently maintained in thought, virtually acknowledges the allness of God, good, and thus helps to protect one from the claims of evil. Gratitude companions with, and helps to promote in one's thought, such gracious qualities as unselfishness, humility, generosity, patience, and good will.

Gratitude for the ever-present perfection of God and His spiritual creation in the face of evidence to the contrary corrects erroneous conditions. Because of his grateful awareness of God's healing presence, Christ Jesus was able to annul all manner of disease and sin and to raise the dead. We are told that before he started to feed a multitude with a few loaves and fishes, he first gave thanks to God.
