Philippians 4:14-23 "Gratitude"

As Paul closes the letter to the church at Philippi, he expresses his gratitude to them for the gift they sent to him.  This text ties in with the one on contentment.  Contentent brings to us a spirit of thanks toward those who are kind and giving.  A self-centered person lacks gratitude because they always want more.  But a person who has found God's plan for their life is thankful and full of gratitude.  If you find yourself always wanting more and not thankful, this message is just for you.
