Half empty or half full?

So... is the glass half empty or half full? I know that this is almost a cliche, but it reveals a very significant aspect of the Christian life.
  • If you answer, "half empty", you may be the type of person who is less grateful than you should be. God has provided you with so much and the very least we can do is be thankful for it.
  • If your answer was, "half full", then you may be the type of thankful Christian Paul exhorts us all to be in 2 Corinthians 9:11, and elsewhere:
You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
May we all learn to be thankful in all things and see every "glass" in our lives as, at least, half full.
