2Ti 3:1-2  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  (2)  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

It doesn’t surprise me that the sin of unthankfulness is prevalent in these end times. Have you seen a more ungrateful people than those in America today? They loot stores – not for food or necessities, but for televisions, brand name items, cell phones!

This world is filled with ungrateful people! People who are not thankful for the blessings they have. They always want more. People are given a gift and do not say thank you. It’s as if they believe they deserve the gift! How sad is that? My parents taught me to say thank you no matter how I felt about what was given to me. They taught me to be grateful for what we had, and that was not much! I grew up in a tar paper shed that my father bought and did the best he could for our family. It wasn’t until I was in my teenage years that he put siding on the house. Was I ungrateful or unthankful? Absolutely not! We had food on the table and clothes on our backs! Our family was together and that is all that mattered.

Heb 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Today’s post is short but the few verses shared are to the point. This generation is not teaching their children to say thank you. How very sad! Children need to be taught to be content with what they have. The more you give children, the less content they will become. It has been proven that children with less toys are more creative. The more they have, the less they use their imagination.

1Ti 6:6-7  But godliness with contentment is great gain.  (7)  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

If you are not truly born-again, you won’t see today’s topic as a sin. But there is coming a time when it will be too late for you to repent and be saved. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
