Our worship of God can never surpass our thankfulness to God.
While people would agree that God is most honored by worship from a thankful heart, many times our thankfulness is lessened by our tethered complaints.
People often seek to thank God for a blessing, and then immediately explain their frustrations with God. For example, how often does one say (or hear) something like this, “I am grateful for my job, but I hate the hours, location, boss, etc., etc.” Such cumbered gratefulness may conceal our ungrateful heart to those with whom we opine, but it doesn’t with God; the only one that really matters.
“Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name,” Psalm 100:4.
