Gratitude is key to our existence. A grateful heart appreciates life and all that come along, the wild and the close, every part of our environment. God created humans to have oversight of the Earth, as stewards, we are not to destroy but to "till and keep". It is only when the seeds of gratitude birth in us that we tend to appreciate nature and the connectivity we have with everything our Creator has made. Let's nurture gratitude, it will bring healing to our world.
Work is absolutely an avenue to demonstrate our love for God. The apostle Paul sees all work as God's work. 'whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord'. Service requires humility and always a joy to make Christ known at the workplace.
