Some Thoughts on Thanksgiving

“We tend to take all the gifts and pleasures and happiness and the joy without saying much to God.  We take our health and strength, our food and clothing and our loved ones, all for granted; but the moment anything goes wrong we start grumbling and complaining and we say ‘Why should God do this to me, why should this happen to me?’  How slow we are to thank and swift to grumble.” [Martyn Lloyd-Jones]

“Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many–not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”  [Charles Dickens]

“I hate ingratitude more in man than lying, vainness, drunkenness or any taint of vice, whose strong corruption inhibits our frail blood.” [Shakespeare]

“You say, ‘If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.’ You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon]
