Motivation: Gratitude!

What is our motivation to live in a world where everyone is going to heaven?  Gratitude!

Sure, we live in a world where the judgments for our sins and the sins of others fall all around us.  But through our Lord, we can endure all these things and know that they are only temporary.  Everything in this life will pass.  What is eternal and secure is our place in the loving arms of our Creator. 

Let us show gratitude by serving Him with reverence and awe each and every day.  This is our fundamental repentance: to be grateful for life, and that it is eternal.  With this motivation, we can pursue the moral excellence He wants from us.
