Attitudes of Gratitude – Luke 17:11-19
Sunday, November 21, 2021

Pastor Mike Bailey

Introduction

Our lives are filled with different roads and destinations, often shaped by the decisions we make, the people we interact with, the work we do, and the people we follow. The attitudes we have will affect where we go, and the way we travel through life. Do we have attitudes of mistrust, hatred, anger, animosity, and blame? Or do we have an attitude of gratitude that others can see, learn from, and be encouraged by? Gratitude can be contagious -leading people around you into a firm hope. What is your attitude? Is it a positive testimony to those around you, or a negative one?
