Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. (Psalm 100:4b)
 
At first a child has no sense of gratitude, which grows out of ignorance of what it costs to provide for him. Food and clothing seem to come automatically. Yet one of the beginning signs of personal maturity in a child is an expression of gratitude—when the child takes the initiative to say, “Thanks, Mom or Dad, for what you have done for me.” But it is also a mark of spiritual maturity when without prompting or coercion, we’re able to look up to the vault of high heaven and confess that sense of gratitude.
