CULTIVATE A GRATEFUL SPIRIT
MAKING LIFE WONDERFUL! “Cultivate A Grateful Spirit” ● NOT THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN LIFE, BUT GRATEFULNESS IN YOUR HEART “In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (I Thessalonians 5:18 NASB) 1. LOOK FOR THE SMALL THINGS YOU CAN BE THANKFUL FOR ● THANKSGIVING IS NOT A DAY, IT’S EVERY “A DAY” 2. GIVE THANKS BEFORE YOU RECEIVE “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.” (Psalm 100:4 NASB)
“…one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice, and he fell on his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan.” (Luke 17:15-16 NASB) “Then Jesus answered and said, ‘Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine – where are they? Was no one found who returned to give glory to God, except this foreigner?’” (Luke 17:17-18 NASB) “And He said to him, ‘Stand up and go; your faith has made you well.’” (Luke 17:19 NASB) 3. STAND UP AND GO “And He said to him, ‘Stand up and go; your faith has made you well.’” (Luke 17:19 NASB) Life Group Discussion:
