Gratitude is a product of humility.
A brief explanation:
The Hebrew word for gratitude is, “hoda’ah” which is the same as the word used for confession.
Being thankful is actually to confess dependence, or to acknowledge that someone else has the power to benefit you, to admit that your life is better because of their efforts. So let’s be thankful and not take things for granted.
SHOWING OUR GRATITUDE
The Bible says in Psalm 100:4-5, that we are to approach God with thanksgiving and praise, In Psalm 107:22, we read where we are to offer him thank offerings, and tell of his works with songs of joy.
Remember, God inhabits the praises of His people (See Psalm 22:3), not the complaints. The quickest way to see change in your life and the quickest way to open up communication is to give thanks!
Being polite is important, but let’s make sure it goes down deeper into a heart attitude. Let’s be grateful; let’s be thankful.
Take time to write down three things you’re grateful for and whether it’s to God, to your spouse or to a friend – tell someone thank you for those things.
Let’s start living a life of gratitude!
