Inspiring Gratitude

Dear friends,

Being accosted by someone who doesn’t mean well can be a most unsettling experience.  I hope no one ever has to go through it.

Matthew Henry, who wrote the well-known six-volume Exposition of the Old and New Testaments (1708–1710) orComplete Commentary, endured such an experience.  While living in London a group of robbers attacked him and took away all his belongings.  Here is what he wrote in his diary:

“Let me be thankful, first, because I was never robbed before; second, because although they took my purse, they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed.”

I think gratitude can be found within the most challenging experiences.  It is this unflinching gratitude that prevents our lower brain from hijacking the rest of it.

I invite you to search for the light of gratitude in what might be challenging you today.

– Amit
