00622 - Saying Thank You

Colossians 3:12 (NIV) says, "Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." This verse encourages us to express thanks continually. By adopting these qualities, we become living testaments to the grace we have received from God.

In embodying these virtues, every "thank you" we utter, and every act of kindness we perform becomes an extension of God's love through us. It's a reminder that our actions, however small, can touch lives in ways we might never fully comprehend. By choosing to clothe ourselves with compassion and kindness, we make the world a slightly better place, one gesture at a time.

Saying Thank You is like letting God work through us. Be a conduit of God's love, making someone's day brighter with our kindness and gratitude, and in doing so, reflect the beauty of our faith in our daily lives.


A thank you costs you nothing but is worth a huge value to whom you say it.


Help me, Lord, to remember to express thanks as often as I should. Amen.

Action Point

Write thank you cards to the last few people who have blessed you.
