Learning to Be Thankful Like Jesus

Matt Brown Week 2

When was the last time you thanked God for the blessings in your life? We each have a tendency to take for granted the gifts that we've been given, whether that's personal talents, financial blessings, or personal relationships. Take some time today to pray a prayer of thankfulness over what you have, and cherish the good times when you have them.

Consider the things you are grateful for, what comes to mind? Consider those who bring joy to your life and those around you, think about your family or those who have had a significant impact in your life. Spend some time thanking God for these things. As you practice gratitude for what God has given you, is there anyone you need to vocalize your gratitude to? Are there any acts of generosity you feel prompted to initiate? What are some opportunities you have in your life where you can be more generous?

During the holiday season, it is easy to get caught up in the noisy and materialistic culture Christians are surrounded by that is focused on consumption and even greed. These moments of greed and selfishness keep us closed off to the beauty of giving to others and experiencing God in that. The Generous Like Jesus Series is about becoming generous in the way Jesus is toward the world. Be generous like Jesus—and together—we can invest in the future of sharing the gospel and help more people become real with themselves, God, and others.
