When you focus on gratitude and thankfulness, it will be more noticeable to others and positively affect them. A friend of mine began incorporating gratitude into his life years ago. When he’s greeted by someone, he says “I’m grateful” rather than “I’m ok.” If he’s sad, he’ll say, “I’m kind of sad today, but I’m grateful.”
Questions for further thought:
1. What are some ways you can help your children, nieces, nephews and neighbor kids incorporate gratitude into their lives?
2. What are ways you’re spreading the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ to help others experience gratitude, peace and joy?
Challenge: Each evening before bed, think about one way you can spread gratitude in your home, work place, school, church, etc.
