Personally, I'm convinced that we were created to be grateful people. When I read the passages of Philippians chapter 4, for instance, the importance of exposing ourselves to God in all things through prayer is underlined by Paul telling us to do so with all thanksgiving. Indeed, thinking about and attending to everything that is good, acceptable and perfect is included into the concept.
Or, as was pointed out in The Illuminati Papers [not a Christian publication, for those interested], here is a quick intelligence test: If your world is getting bigger and funnier, your intelligence is steadily increasing. If your world is getting smaller and nastier, your stupidity is steadily increasing.
I'm grateful for being at SparkPeople, and to be a part of getting help and assisting others as I can.
