If a billionaire lives without gratitude, is he truly rich?

If a genius lives without gratitude, is she truly smart?

If a gifted musician or athlete lives without gratitude, should we be envious of their lives?

Because if you can have everything that you want, but can’t be grateful, what have you really got?

I’ve seen children living in poverty who were grateful for the little that they have.

I’ve seen those with perceived disabilities who were grateful for what they could do.

I’ve seen those who have very little opportunity to improve their standing in the world live with no regrets and zero jealousy of others.

So today, be grateful…

For what you have.

For what you can do.

For the people around you.

For the God who loves you.

Because without gratitude, what have you got?
