Scripture

Part 1: Deuteronomy 8:1-5  
Part 2: Deuteronomy 8:6-18  

Sermon

Part 1: Nurturing a Grateful Heart in the Desert

Part 2: Nurturing a Grateful Heart in the Promised Land

Summary

Part 1: Our journey into the desert experiences of life teaches us a deeper, more profound thankfulness.  A thankfulness forged in a furnace of suffering humbles us and teaches us to look past the gifts of God, to the giver of these gifts.

Part 2:  The prosperity of the Promised Land can easily lead to forgetfulness, pride and self-sufficiency.  Intentional regular worship of the Giver, together with sacrificial giving, and other Christian disciplines cultivate in us a thankful heart, even during prosperous times.
