If expressing gratitude is to become a way of life for us, we can’t treat it as an optional exercise. If it never gets beyond our wish list, if it only nestles down with all the other nice things we hope to get around to someday, the “someday” of gratitude will never roll around on our calendars.
A grateful heart is a heart that beats with praise and gratitude. It seeks to give thanks and praise each and every time praise is due. Think of it as being a debt you owe, the same way you’re called upon to pay your monthly bills. Don’t skip your payments; instead, be faithful to give what is due each time.
Lord, teach me how to express thanks to You and others regularly so my gratitude account doesn’t become overdue. I want to give what’s due to others, to encourage them and to remember that I am blessed by Your hand. Thank You!
Gratitude in Action: Is there someone whom you have failed to recognize or thank for some word or act of kindness? Make a point today to make a phone call or send a quick message just to thank that individual for their encouragement and friendship.
