Thankfulness is something most people agree is good, but it often remains an abstract positive, something we know is beneficial but can’t necessarily explain why.
We teach our kids to say thank you and please, but often forget to treat God with the same respect. We pray, ask, beg, say please and when our desires come to fruition we forget to come back and say thank you. Seeing the lepers in Luke 17 as an example, only 1 out of the 10 blessed and healed by Jesus came back to express their gratitude. It is important for the Christian to know how and why God would call something good, so as we look at the spiritual benefits of thankfulness, may it help you to develop a heart that overflows.
