Even secular societies realize the importance of being thankful/or showing gratitude. Yet, it can prove quite difficult to give thanks (amidst such tremendous abundance) because we’re so focused on what we don’t have instead of what we do have.
When we forget to be thankful, that’s when we begin a slow but gradual downward spiral. Romans 1
Praise The Lord, my soul, and forget none of His benefits

Amen friend, I think you got it precisely. We have so much, then we think we need more, then we think we are owed more…and on and on it goes! Thanks and nice to see you around again.

Very true; a profound point that we were made more than for consumerism, materialism and prosperity

You have seen believers in several countries, right? How different is it in those places?

I think temptations of materialism, wealth and security is common to man. I think in the third world we see the temptation too, from what I gather from people asking questions and other mature believers telling me about being wise in sharing about America to the more younger believers. I do think we have it harder in the West since we are relatively much more affluent than other parts of the world. It’s more in our face; but with things like social media and internet mobile phones we see the Western values being on displayed to younger generations for good or for bad. Yet I also am encouraged with how vibrant the Christianity is in countries that officially bans Christianity or legally gives Christians a hard time. Something about the risk they have to take sometimes moves people to see Christianity is not just a game or a get rich scheme…

Thanks for that brother Jim. One thing that made me ask that is some talking I have done with a pastor from Brazil, and he has said that sadly extreme versions of the prosperity gospel are being preached in some of the poorer parts of the world, and folks just dive right into it.

Wow I can see that. Heartbreaking.
