GRATITUDE: The Greatest Virtue


 Thankfulness leaves no room for discouragement.  I once read a legend of a man who found the barn where Satan kept his seeds ready to be sown in the human heart, and on finding the seeds of discouragement more numerous than others, he learned that those seeds could be made to grow almost anywhere.  When Satan was questioned, he reluctantly admitted that there was one place in which he could never get them to thrive. "And where is that?" asked the man.  Satan replied sadly, "In the heart of a grateful man."  V. Norskov Olsen, President of Loma Linda University



May God give us grateful hearts not only at Thanksgiving, but every day of the year
