Today on Facebook I was reading that Billy Graham once said, “Envy and greed starve on a steady diet of thanksgiving.” This is so true. If I spend time watching television, particularly the commercials it can lead me to a place of discontentment; I see all things that I don’t have. All the things that world tells me I “need.” It’s also been said that contentment is not about what you don’t have but wanting what you do have. I look at my beautiful wife, delightful children, my health and the job that enjoy and can’t help but feel gratitude. What are you grateful for today?
