Show Someone Gratitude Today


Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. -James 1:17 NIV

Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. There are people in your life who have shown you an act of kindness. Don’t let the people you are thankful for feel unappreciated.

Here are three ideas to show someone gratitude today:

  1. A Thank-You Card – Writing someone a handwritten card shows time and effort. It can be very meaningful, especially to those who appreciate this “old fashioned” method.
  2. An Online Shoutout – Shout it from the rooftops! Tell the world how great someone is by giving them a shoutout on your preferred social media platform.
  3. Take Them Out – Does the person you’re thankful for enjoy quality time? Maybe the best way to express your gratitude is to take them out for lunch, a cup of coffee, or to their favorite ice cream shop!

Don’t let acts of kindness stop with you. God is all about giving. You will see He gives gifts repeatedly in the Bible, including the gift of His son. Be the gift that keeps on giving. Express your thankfulness to someone today!

Prayer Focus

  • Thank God for His many, many good and perfect gifts!
  • Ask Him to show you how many people you have to be thankful for and which one would be especially in need of a thank you.
