“There is no such thing as gratitude unexpressed. If it is unexpressed, it is plain, old-fashioned ingratitude” (Robert Brault). Who would be so unreasonable to deny that our gratitude should be expressed to others?
The psalmist wrote, “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,” (Psalms 92:1-2).
First, it is good to give thanks to God because God deserves it. There is not one good thing you will enjoy today that did not come from God (James 1:16-17).
Second, it is good to give thanks because it benefits us. When we consider our blessings, we concentrate on what we have, rather than what we do not have; we concentrate on our fortune in life rather than our misfortune. Giving thanks motivates us to be happy and produces an attitude of contentment.
Today, I will give thanks to God!
