Thanksliving Day 29

It is November 29th and our journey in Thanksliving is drawing to a close. It has been an eye-opening journey for me and I hope you have found some food for thought as well along the way.

As we end this journey, let’s check our progress. Try honestly answering these questions:

  1. Do I often complain about my circumstances, feeling as though I deserve better?
  2. Do others hear me voice more complaints and negative comments than words of gratitude?
  3. Would others describe me as a thankful person?
  4. What evidence is there that I have a grateful ( or an ungrateful) spirit?
  5. How often do I begin statements with these words “I am thankful that…”
  6. Do I more frequently display a pessimistic, negative outlook or a positive, grateful perspective?
  7. Am I reserved or eager when it comes to expressing appreciation to others?
  8. My most recent expression of gratitude was…..

How do you feel about your answers?  Speaking for myself, this journey has helped me develop an awareness of how often I make negative comments and has encouraged me to work on changing them into more positive words.

Gratitude In Action

In our passage for today, Paul is encouraging young Timothy to persevere… to stay the course…to be diligent. I would like to encourage you to do the same. If this journey has made a change in your attitude, consider making yourself accountable to someone to continue your progress. Let others help you stay committed to being a grateful person while being there to offer support for them as well.

Devotional Scripture

Command and teach these things. Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. – 1 Timothy 4:11-16 New International Version (NIV)
