From the time we are growing up until we become parents ourselves, we are always reminded to respond in thankfulness for things that we are given or have done. It's a very important trait to take with you as you grow old.
Even though we are believers, we often forget to thank God for all the beautiful things he has done for us. So we should take time out of our busy week to just sit down alone and thank God for surrounding our lives with blessings. It is too often we are given such beautiful things, and don't realize how grateful we should be. There are people in this world who are less fortunate than you may be, so it is always important to say "thank you."
The Bible provides us with several Bible verses that signify the importance of being grateful. Below are 7 Bible verses that will remind you of the importance of being grateful:
"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever" (1 Chronicles 16:34).
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him" (Colossians 3:17).
"Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!" (2 Corinthians 9:15).
"Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Romans 7:25).
"I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds" (Psalms 9:1).
