How can I foster gratitude in my home? What are some activities to do with kids to grow in gratitude? Is it possible to feel thankful in times of suffering? How does the undergoing of suffering connect to the overcoming of sin? Why should I be grateful for my flaws? How can I overcome the parts of my life where I feel weak? Where in scripture does God teach about undergoing suffering, overcoming sin and gratitude?
From an earthly perspective, if you want to overcome something it’s through one’s own strategizing, power and abilities. But in our life of faith, the biggest things we overcome come from undergoing what Jesus over-went… suffering.-Tom
Every morning I wake up to thank Him. I’m not a morning person, despite my desire, and never will be. Rather than seeing it as a flaw, I thank God for making me this way. -Kari
