A Question for the Chaplain.

Seems I’m not quite finished with October yet.

Something reminded me tonight of the Grace we used to say before lunch at the high school I attended:

For what we are about receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful.

Only now does it occur to me how irrational such a request is. If you have to ask God to make you grateful for what he’s giving you, doesn’t it rather negate the value of the gratitude?
