Daily Dose Of Boldness

Your Daily Dose of Boldness-Gratitude is Riches

Gratitude is Riches

I’ve been noticing something lately. The complaining is getting
louder and louder. More and more people are taking to the
airwaves to express their grievances. I think it’s the political
climate and 24-hour news cycle, but I also think it’s the fact
that we now have more and more platforms to express
ourselves. From our political leanings to how we feel about
various products or people, social media has become a public
forum to get things off our chests.
On top of this, I civil discourse and the ability to love one
another is taking a precipitous nosedive. We’re all becoming
well-versed and practiced ‘freelance critics.’
Now, don’t get me wrong; social media has its merits. We can
communicate and see our loved ones who live hundreds, if not
thousands of miles away. We can see pictures, celebrate
achievements, and participate in conversations with people
worldwide. But as with all things, moderation
and contemplation are key! Think before you speak and, for
heaven’s sake, follow your mother’s advice, “If you don’t have
anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
The reason I entitled this post, Gratitude is Riches and
Complaint is Poverty because I think we need to spend more
time in the ‘riches’ category and less time in the down-and-out
class.
When I say riches and poverty, I’m not talking about money or
wealth. I’m talking about the very soul of a human being. When
you’re bogged down in complaint, you subsist on the meager
crumbs of dissatisfaction. On the flip side, when you’re filled
with gratitude and a wonderful thanksgiving at your blessings,
your life is suddenly filled with sensory richness. Colors are
more vibrant, smells are more distinct, touch is more
enjoyable, and joy is more apparent. You can’t be unhappy and
grateful at the same time. It’s impossible.
So, how do we change our mindset? We start by changing our
very environment. We go to church. I find it interesting that
we applaud and give awards to the snarky commentator and
roll our eyes at the pastor, who is sharing God’s Good News
of Grace and Love. There is something wrong with this
picture!
Instead, ignore the commentator and start filling your life with
the good news of the Gospel. Fellowship with like-minded
believers and go to church to be thankful for all the riches God
affords you.
