“…in the few pages of his Colossian letter, the apostle Paul challenges believers to be ‘always’ thankful (Col. 1: 3), ‘abounding’ in gratitude (2: 7), devoting ourselves to prayer, ‘being watchful in it in thanksgiving’ (4: 2). The ‘attitude of gratitude’ is a clear command and expectation of God. Even when we don’t feel so inclined or are more mindful of our problems than our blessings, we are told to give glory and gratitude to Him.”
