doesn’t have gratitude,
something is missing in
his or her humanity.

Blind to the blessing

American Family2

It is generally true that
all that is required to make people 
unmindful of what they owe God
for any blessing is that they
should receive that blessing
often and regularly.

–Richard Whately
(1787 – 1863)

Without thankfulness

Country Road Sunrise

Life without thankfulness
is devoid of love and passion.
Hope without thankfulness
is lacking in fine perception.
Faith without thankfulness
lacks strength and fortitude.
Every virtue divorced
from thankfulness
is maimed and limps along
the spiritual road.

–John Henry Jowett
(1864-1923)

Ingratitude

Basically and radically
all sin is simply
ingratitude.

–Karl Barth (1886 – 1968)
