“Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!” — Psalm 107:31, NKJV

A gratitude must begin

with a humility in recognition

of the Giver of the gifts, 

the Provider of our needs.

How does that thanksgiving

manifest?  In words, prayers,

acts of kindness given back 

into the world?  

And are we sincere?

Sometimes the uttering 

of a thank you is just 

an automated response, 

without thought,

a hollow display 

with no real offering.

Let us instead recognize

our place with a beautiful 

and submissive honoring 

of our God who we love 

because He first loved us.
