Listen to a Ransomed Heart podcast on gratitude with John Eldredge. The audio excerpt in this Jesus Smart episode is from this episode.
The down payment—2 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5; Ephesians 1:13-14 by Dr. Craig Keener. This is the article I reference in this episode.
To whom or what are we grateful? Can we be abstract or vague about gratitude?
I believe that as we are first grateful to our Creator, then we condition and position ourselves to be authentically grateful to others … in whatever context we relate to them: family, friendship, business/work, our place in the larger world, and so on.
Gratitude is like PRIMING a PUMP. Surprisingly, as we make the decision to be thankful, it releases a spring of gratitude, a flow of thankfulness.
With a grateful heart-set, focus upon what you do have. “Mysteriously,” as we do this, we increasingly attract what is good and right.
