The Thanksgiving season reminds us of the goodness in our lives and the abundance that surrounds us, regardless of our circumstances. Gratefulness can profoundly improve our emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. Here are some resources to help you to give thanks to God, to others, and to the earth that sustains us.
Bible Verses about Gratitude
“O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.” 1 Chronicles 16:34
“Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
“With gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.” Colossians 3:16
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.” 1 Timothy 4:4-5
What keeps us from feeling grateful? What keeps us stuck in resentment,
envy, and entitlement?
