Having That Gratitude Attitude
No US holiday is as distinctive as Thanksgiving, held on the last Thursday of November. In our busy, deadline-fixated age, expressing gratitude to our heavenly Father is too easily squeezed out of our lives but it is important. Firstly, I think human beings are ‘hardwired’ to do this. Even atheists seem to have unsettling moments when they feel an irresistible urge to thank someone ‘up there’. One of the problems with atheism occurs when pain is avoided or pleasure gained – having no one to give thanks to leaves you with an itch you cannot scratch.
