How to NOT Get Bitten by a Snake

It is gratitude.  The very thing you need so you won't get bit. 

By a snake.

It was true in the garden so many years ago. A woman not thankful for the fruit she did have, reaches for the one piece that should be out of reach, changing life on earth.  The Snake had struck.  It would happened again in the wilderness.

A little ingratitude goes a long way...

And the people became impatient because of the journey. The people spoke against God and Moses, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this miserable food.” Numbers 21:4b-5

A little ingratitude comes back to bite you...

The Lord sent fiery serpents among the people and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. Numbers 21:6

The story in Numbers of the Israelites fending off snakes in the wilderness is one good reason (really good!) to express gratitude.  So I keep a gratitude journal thanking Him for all the things He has done for me because honestly, I  never really did like snakes!
