Gratitude and the Generosity of God’s Presence
This time of the year, we are often reminded of the importance of gratitude. Gratitude is beneficial physically, mentally, and spiritually. However, gratitude can be difficult. Throughout the Bible, God calls his people to remember what he has done. This remembrance plays a huge role in gratitude. God is a generous God and when we remember what he has done, we can’t help but be grateful.
One of the best gifts that God generously gives us is his presence. Since the beginning of the world, God has been present in our world. With the coming of Jesus, God gifts his presence in an entirely new way. Though Jesus is no longer physically present in the world, we now have the Holy Spirit who allows us to experience God’s presence now. This is truly something to be grateful for.
