The Gift of Thankfulness
Scripture: Psalm 136:1-9
Reflection: We remember that God has done wonderful things for us, and God has given us so much. Sometimes we focus only on what we have been given, though, and we don’t remember to be grateful for what we have and to give thanks. Today, we show our appreciation for what God has given us, and for what others have given us. Think about what you were given on Christmas Day, but also what you have been given throughout the year—the love of your family and friends, your friendships, your teachers—all those who have given to you are gifts from God. Thank them today.
Activity: Write Thank-You Cards
Prayer: Giver of all Good Gifts, we thank You God for all You have given us, but especially for our families, our friends, our churches, and all the people who mean so much to us. Help us to show our appreciation and gratitude. Amen.
