Appreciation is when is the act of acknowledging and showing value for a particular thing. Don't be an ungrateful person, because when you appreciate the little thing you see no matter how little it might be, more of it will surely come.

Why the complaint?

My mates are this.......

My mates are that......

Why not me?

What an ungrateful fellow you are.

Have you forgotten that some of your mates are dead?

Have you forgotten that some are lunatics?

Have you forgotten that some of your mates are in the hospital breathing with oxygen?

But here you are, none of this happened to you, you're still complaining, why not be appreciative of everything.

Did you know that.........

Some people are still praying to be like you? They are praying for that kind of house you're living. They are praying for that kind of car you're driving. They are praying for that kind of clothes and shoes you're putting on. All they crave is to be like you and you're there complaining instead of showing gratitude for what you've got.

Appreciate God with a joyful heart. Appreciate him for the gift of sleeping and waking. Appreciate him for his sufficient grace. Appreciate him in difficulties and when things are going smoothly. Appreciate him in every single moment of your life.

Many seek to be alive today, but they couldn't. You're alive not because you're righteous than them, Not because you're faithful more than them, But you're living by God's grace.

Just a little Story....

There's was a girl who came from a very poor background, they hardly eat a square meal per day.

She has a friend who is from a wealthy family, she always put on the best cloth in town, always seeing her with the best ride but her case was different. Not easy to live in abject poverty.

Whenever she woke up in the morning, she's will always say negative things about herself .." why is did God brought me to a poor background, why not a rich family like my friend, she gets everything she wants, hardly can I have a square of a meal, this suffering is too much for me to bear, and now I'm awake to continue the suffering " that's what she always says.

One day as she was coming back from the farm, she came across her friend who came from a healthy family, they both exchange greetings and in the process, the poor girl said " I will love to be like you "

The rich girl took a deep breath and was silent for a minute before she broke the silent saying...

" Don't crave to be like me, you're good the way you are, you just saw me that I'm living fine, putting on nice clothes, driving a good car, but did you know what I'm passing through underneath, I'm a dialysis patient and I'm also suffering from cancer, my days are numbered, if it's possible for me to be poor and live a healthy life I will " while saying this, her eyes was filled with tears and was about to drop like heavy rainfall.

The poor girl felt sorry for her and, then she realize the adventure of life, she saw a situation better than hers, Even though she's poor today, tomorrow might be better. Since then she learned how to appreciate God for everything she has especially for the gift of life.

The least we can do is to be appreciative of who we are, because there is always someone you think is better than you, but that person also has something you wouldn't want

We should always be contented with what we have, God knows the reason why he placed us in the position we find ourself because he knows we can handle it. The thing you're wishing to have might just be what will bring harm to you tomorrow

You're on point!!! That's what I think about always, God does his own thing in the right way and at appropriate time, we should not be faster than our shadow.

That's what majority of people don't think about, some time im passing through problem, I don't have any reason to complain, but instead I will sing praises to him to thank him for everything I have and for whom I am.

Exactly, there's a reason for everything and we just have to keep having faith in God to see us through any tribulation

An attitude of gratitude would turn our attitude into a beatitude. We sure need to be appreciative because we really don't know what others are going through. Gratitude gives us a different perspective.

You are talking to my senses , if we should be in other people's shoe's will get to know the pain they are passing through.

Just like our faces are different, so the things everyone is facing is different too. If we should move close to some people, we will always show gratitude to God in our own Case.

Instead of complaining, why not be grateful for everything we have right now. I hope we all appreciate the things or the life we have because it's God's blessing and who are we to complain? Well, thanks for this article Maryjacy! ❤

You're right, who are we to complain for what we don't have, that's an ungrateful heart. Even when everything is not going on fine, we should thank him for the one he has done.

A saying goes thus: if you thank a mighty one for the one he did, he will do another one even without asking.

You are right, we should be grateful for what we have because there will always be things that we lack and want. Appreciation is the little way we can encourage people to do more and tell God that we know the value of the things he gives or has given us.

When you show appreciation for what that's is being given to you , either in a large quantity in small measure, you'll definitely received more just because you showed appreciate.

But some will never appreciate, that's so bad. Even they find it difficult to show appreciation to human being they can see, how much more for God whom they cannot see??

We live in a world where we don't have everything. There will be a but in our lives and we should appreciate God for the little we have because others are craving to get what we own in our possession. Not everyone you see are complete or living fine. Let's be grateful to God always for an opportunity in us.

You hit the nail on it's head , we can't have everything we want, so we just calm down and thank God for the one we see. The rich are still lacking in some aspects and some poor people are living with happiness because they appreciate the little things we have .

The secret of happiness is being contended with what we have , because , that shows we appreciate it. We should stop the complaining about what we don't have.

Have we have thought about this, what if I should have this thing I'm longing to have, will it be useful for me??

Can you imagine? I once read the story of a wealthy man who prayed for good health in exchange for his wealth.

In life, we must always appreciate whatever we have and work to have more instead of feeling ungrateful.

I've not come across the story you're talking about, wish i can get , wish to read it. Life is much more important than all this thing we might be craving for.

Why this , why day, why me? Who could it be , should it be someone else? Everyone has the cross they bear , but it might be in different measure. But in all situation we should always try to thank God. Though might sound difficult.

Thanks fir your contribution on this .

That just the fact, we just have to be contented with what very have. Some rich people don't are also face with different kind of problem we might not see physically, and we always be craving to be like them . Why not be thankful for the gift of life and be appreciate God for the little thing we have.

Yeah, just like you say , Money is good, but we must always be careful with it, just like it's the root of bad bad things, it also the root of good things too, but we should be care and wait for God time. Be thankful for even the breath we take in.

I appreciate your contribution on this.
