St. Paul says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing and GIVE THANKS TO GOD at every moment. This is the will of God, your vocation as Christians.”(1 Thessalonians. 5:16-18) Our life is a life of thanksgiving. Gratitude should be our attitude. We are called to be grateful in good times and bad times. The festival that commemorates the birth of Jesus is an occasion of preparing us to change our lives into a grateful one.

Let us be grateful to the great love of God

God loved the whole humanity so much that He sent His only Son to live among them, to participate in all the trials and tribulations of humanity and to suffer and lay down his life for them. If we recognize that great love, it is sure that we shall be faithful to his commandments. We will prove it through our love towards God and men. The attitude of gratitude builds up this love. It will make us live a positive life.

Gratitude can change our lives

During Advent, we often hear the words of Prophet Isaiah, “Listen to this voice crying out in the desert: prepare the way of the Lord, make his path straight. The valleys will be filled and the mountains and hills made low…every mortal will see the salvation of God.” (Luke 3:4-6) The call of John the Baptist is the clarion call for the arrival of Messiah. It is a call for a change in our life. It is a call to come out of our cocoons of selfishness. It is call to share our life in love and gratitude. It is a sharing way of love. Love and gratitude go together. If there is an attitude of gratitude it will lead us to the life of selfless love.

Advent is an occasion to thank

Thanksgiving Day has passed. But every day is an occasion of thanking. Gratitude is the first sign of grace. The season of Advent is to thank God for His great love and to practice it our daily life, so that it may enable us to participate in real Christmas. Otherwise the day will come and go without any trace of good in our life!
