Harsh sounds are ungrateful to the ear.The nation in which we live is VERY Ungrateful for what they have. The people that are living in this nation only think about themselves and not others.We have the tendencies to focus on ME, all about us and what we can get for ourselves. The technology of todays age is all about convince to us. We live in a very Materialism world. The time that we spend watching the T.V. it puts thoughts into our minds that feed the flesh. Then our self centered nature the fallen man trys to take over telling us that we need to own this thing that will give us the happiness that we are missing.We are to take captive all the thoughts that come into our mind. 2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;So as you can read here in the scriptures that we are to guard our hearts by taking captive the thoughts that dont line up with the word of GOD.We as a nation especially this time of the season which is Christmas. We are just going about trying to find the RIGHT gift to give to someone so that we can feel good about ourselves. We are missing the whole concept about giving; we are supposed to be doing that all year long. But the thing that should be first in all is putting Christ first. Do we even put GOD first in the things that we do all of the rest of the year? We as a nation has missed this, we need to be getting back to putting God the very first thing on our list of things to do.So in all we should be grateful and thankful to GOD for what we have as a nation, personal. Here is also what we should be doing:1Th 5:16 Rejoice evermore.1Th 5:17 Pray without ceasing.1Th 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1Th 5:19 Quench not the SpiritSo everyone pleas keep the LORD GOD first in you all lives 7days a week not just 1day a week like most so called Christians do. Be Grateful and Thankful for what God has given.From: The Revolutionist His Bondservant Forever In Christ Jesus :-?
