Arrogance, boastfulness and pride kills thanksgiving because thanksgiving lives in humility...a proud individual is seldom a grateful person because they think they receive what is due them. A PROUD person who does not win. usually is UNGRATEFUL and UNTHANKFUL, a HUMBLE person who does not win, is usually GRATEFUL and THANKFUL for the opportunity to participate! To live THANKFUL is to live HUMBLE, to live HUMBLE is to live THANKFUL! THANKFULNESS keep us us connected to HUMBLENESS thus, connected to Him who is HUMBLE!
