Most people think that there's an unbreakable link between things going well and gratitude. But what if there's not?

The Christmas story in Matthew starts in a strange way - by rehearsing two thousand years of God's faithfulness which looks like people having to patiently wait for God to keep his promises. Maybe gratitude and hope looks like trusting God in spite of good things, while waiting for a faithful God to do better than he promised.
