How to avoid ingratitude to God?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: How fortunate is the person who does not convert God’s blessings into ingratitude, and how lucky are those who show/express kindness and friendship to each other for the sake of God [1]. The issue of converting God’s blessings into ingratitude is very important. Sometimes God grants a blessing to the human being, for example wealth; it is possible to reach high ranks with God by spending from that wealth for charity (Sadaqah), help the needy, save some people from hunger and  destitution, etc. And one can also act the opposite by spending the money in corrupt ways, in Haram ways; this is clear display of ingratitude to God.
