But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
1 Peter 2:9.
Seriously though. If you’re lacking thankfulness (i doubt you are but…) then remember that we don’t have to confess our sins to an old man someplace or hold on to them in our hearts. We can go straight to God ourselves. That’s number one on my list. (followed by siblings and parents and friends and ice cream and songs and travel.).
