Time in gratitude

MONDAYphil1.3.001

When Paul penned these words to the believers in Philippi, he wasn’t in a luxury resort. He was in a stone jail cell, probably cold, hungry, and lonely. Yet he expressed an attitude of gratitude. Notice he doesn’t thank God for THINGS, but for PEOPLE. He saw evidence of grace in others and praised God for His work in them. We all have those in our lives who are growing and maturing in their faith. Have you taken the time to thank God for His work in their lives? What about thanking Him for those who have come alongside you in a moment of need and supported you through prayer or words of wisdom or a bolstering hand? Praise brings blessing to the giver and the Receiver. Why not spend some time in gratitude today?
