TOPIC: GRATITUDE MEANS GREAT ATTITUDE!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: LUKE 17:12 – 19
12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

Gratefulness precedes greatness! Oh, welcome to the last month of this year 2021. You have been alive from January to this season of this last month. Men who refuse to express their gratefulness and appreciation never achieve and maintain the heights of greatness that God destined for them. Chance and sheer “luck” can take you up to a great position, but they are not strong enough to keep you there. A positive attitude is what it takes to stay on top and an important ingredient of that attitude is gratefulness. An attitude of gratitude. Gratitude is translated GREAT ATTITUDE. If you want to become great, you cannot do without this GREAT ATTITUDE. Look at the ten lepers in today’s story: only one of them came back to appreciate Jesus for what He did. Because of his attitude, he received more. HE WHO EXPRESSES GRATITUDE SETS HIMSELF UP FOR MORE BLESSINGS. No matter how 2021 has been if you choose to bottle up your appreciation inside you, you are isolating yourself from God’s greatness AND FROM MORE! True gratitude comes from the heart, it is expressed willingly and cheerfully, and it is expressed promptly. Cultivating an attitude of gratitude begins with appreciating your family members and friends. Appreciate all who have stood by you over the years. This month or even today, take some time off to call one or two of them to tell them how much you appreciate their love and support. You may want to write a “thank you” letter or do a voice note. Such things are powerful! It goes a long way in showing that you are not just taking them for granted. Above all, refuse to be discouraged or depressed NO MATTER THE BATTLES! Learn to appreciate God. Take time out to worship and praise Him EVERY DAY because He is working behind the scenes for your sake! Hold on, hold out and trust Him!
