Are we GRATEFUL for what we "don't have", where we give thanks because our tribulations are not as "bad" as someone else? Or, are we GRATEFUL for what we do have, where our worldly wants are satisfied? Do we have to compare our situations to someone less fortunate in order to PSYCH OUR SELVES UP to be GRATEFUL? Have we not experienced the HOLINESS of GOD'S PRESENCE of unfailing love and faithfulness that surpasses even our expectations and imagination (Psalm 138:2)? Is our GRATITUDE only a strong and secret hope of greater favors? A GRATEFUL HEART does not come from comparing things of this world.
