I've been quite challenged over recent weeks on a number of levels to be less cynical and more thankful. Both in terms of God and how I think about prayer and answers but also about people.
We live in a world which is very cynical in its outlook and response to anything, partly as a defence mechanism partly because it is viewed as being cool. But cynicism is simply unbelief and unbelief has been what Hebrews has been warning us against repeatedly over the last few weeks.
The antidote to cynicism is thankfulness for who Christ is and what he has done in us and in others.
