Gratitude

I was chatting with a friend once, about God and prayers and stuff and he said one sentence that completely shocked me-
"What is there to thank God about?"

God is the Supreme Father. He is always there with us, not symbolically, not in thoughts, not allegorically or metaphysically but actually. He is right there, through all our so-called joys and all our very real sufferings. No matter how many sins we do, or whichever body we are in, no matter how much we neglect Him and how self-absorbed we are, He loves us and always tries to guide us on the right path. In fact He is the only person, who loves us unconditionally, all the time.
Isnt this enough to thank Him?

Every day is a blessing from God. He has given us a healthy body, food, and a loving family. There is at least somebody who cares about us.
Isnt this enough to thank Him?

God guides us through all situations. Even the negative events that happen, happen by His will to teach us something. He is helping and guiding us even in difficult times.
Isnt this enough to thank Him?

God's mercy and guidance comes through various different forms. One must utilize ones intelligence to actively seek them out, atleast to recognize them.
Gratitude is the first step towards loving God.

  1. Ya, correct, whatever happens in our life is always as what God wants for us. We should always be grateful to Him coz whatever we have today is not because we earned it but b'coz He wants us to have it and we have to be thankful to Him.
