An Attitude of Gratitude

As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s a good time to check how thankful we are.

Answer these questions and based on your answers, how would you rank your Attitude of Gratitude?

  1. Do you say “thank you” less than once a day?
  2. Do you often spend time wishing/dreaming that things would be different?
  3. Do you often find fault with others?
  4. Are most of the words that come out of your mouth critical/negative or positive/affirming?
  5. Do you have a demanding spirit, more often looking to others to meet your needs rather than looking to meet other’s needs?
  6. Do you blame others for your problems?

The Psalmist often speaks about a thankful heart. We as leaders must do our best to model a attitude of gratitude for those we serve.

Psalm 69:30, “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.”

Psalm 95:2, “Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.”

Psalm 100:4, “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”
