Common sense wise as a Christian you should have a desire to thank Jesus Christ for what you do have, for all things were made through him and for him
and because of him we can have these things. Giving thanks to the Lord is about remembrance, of remembering the One who gave it all, even to the point
of death on a roman cross to ransom our damned souls and resurrect our dead spirits by giving us the Breath of Life. The simplest point can be made
in the scripture I will post below.
11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there
met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving
Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.
17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God
except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
Out of the 10 lepers he healed,1 was a Samaritan and the other 9 were jews, but it was the foreigner who returned to give thanks.
The moral of that story is, that often we take advantage of the Lord and do not give him his due glory, this is why it's important for christians to
be humble in spirit, so that we remember the hand that feeds us and where our blessings come from.
