Showing Our Gratitude to God
This Sunday's Gospel reminds us how we can live happier lives by giving God what is due to Him. But what is due to God in our own lives? Surely 'our gratitude' would be a good answer to this question. Being grateful to God puts us in the right frame of mind. It is good for our well-being and helps us to be happy in life.
