UNTHANKFUL. ADJECTIVE. 1. Not showing or feeling gratitude: thankless, unappreciative, ungrateful. Synonyms include: rude, careless, thoughtless, self-centered. It’s a mark of the last days person, “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy” 2 Timothy 3:2 We also know that Paul is talking about those who profess to be Christians in all appearance and words, but lack God’s redeeming power to overcome their flesh. (v.5)
I’m dumbfounded at the amount of rudeness I see in people, but especially those claiming Christ. These claim their own righteousness and selflessness, while accusing you of wrongdoing. This is how you spot a fake: those who constantly accuse others. Have you forgotten what’s been done for you? It was your sin that crucified Jesus.
Have you forgotten how many times you’ve been fed by others? How many times the church has helped with your marriage? Provided ministry? Taught your children? Gave you a friend? Bought you food? Paid your rent? Taught you the Word of God? That church is a Body of believers; if one has helped then that church has done it for you. Are you a spiritual fornicator? You only want the benefits of the Body without actually being married to her? Unthankfulness is a poison. Rudeness is prevalent in society, but these should not even touch the Church. Humble yourself quickly! God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Always be thankful, this is the will of God. #RunYourRace
