Gratitude is important. God wants us to be thankful everyday for the blessings that He so freely gives us. But you know what else is important? Joy. God also wants us to feel the joy that comes with His blessings. Joy from knowing that our Father in heaven, through His unmerited love, sent His Son to die so that we can live. God calls us beloved, righteous, and His. He blesses us abundantly not because He has to, but because He wants to. And knowing this, should light up our hearts with great joy!
