Chesterton on Gratitude


G. K. Chesterton was one of those rare individuals who lived from 1874-1936. He was a prolific writer, thinker, debater, and apolgist for the Christian faith.

He was a creative "word-smith" who found brilliant and beautiful ways to describe the way of Christ. 

In my opinion, some of his best thoughts had to do with gratitude. As we are in the week of the North American Thanksgiving holiday, take a little time to reflect on Chesterton's thoughts.

Chesterton knew we had been blessed by God with every good gift. Chesterton believed that all of life was a gift. He determined not to take things for granted, but to take them with gratitude. So he said GRACE all the time. How about you? How do you experience life? How grateful do you feel?
