To avoid resentment and worry over ingratitude, here is Rule 3:
- Instead of worrying about ingratitude, let’s expect it? Let’s remember that Jesus healed ten leapers in one day—and only one thanked Him. Why should we expect more gratitude than Jesus got?
- Let’s remember that the only way to find happiness is not to expect gratitude, but to give for the joy of giving.
- Let’s remember that gratitude is a “cultivated” trait; so if we want our children to be grateful, we must train them to be grateful.
