Rule 2: Be grateful for the life God has given you.

Bible text(s)

11Be grateful for the good things that the LORD your God has given you and your family; and let the Levites and the foreigners who live among you join in the celebration.

Deuteronomy 26:11GNBOpen in Bible reader

Be grateful for the life God has given you. The greatest compliment to the giver is to enjoy the gift fully. You owe it to your Creator to be as happy as you can possibly be, without burdening yourself with needless regrets and recriminations. Life is more than a test where you are required to demonstrate how good or clever you are. It is an adventure with highs and lows and even some bad times, but it always remains an incomparable adventure.
