The Virtue of Gratitude and Stewardship:
“The greatest saint in the world is not he who prays most or fasts most; it is not he who gives most alms, or is most eminent in temperance, chastity or justice. It is he who is most thankful to God. This is the perfection of all virtues” – William Law. We do well to give thanks to God always and everywhere. The truth is that everything that we possess, or are able to accomplish is only because of our good and gracious God. The Holy Spirit, and an attitude of gratitude, is what move the Christian steward and disciple into action.
