A person’s life takes a different path when they decide to make gratitude a daily practice. According to Harvard Health Publishing, gratitude has been shown to help people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity and build strong relationships. Many studies published on the topic support an association between gratitude and well-being. Gratitude is something God can develop in us if we allow Him to.
Questions for further thought:
1. What is one thing you’re grateful for today?
2. Who is someone you could share this with?
Challenge: Ask a friend or family member if they will be your gratitude partner. Make a plan to text or email them something you’re thankful for. This could be daily or weekly.
