If you are grateful for this day, what will you do with it? If you are grateful for the time you have been given, you will not waste it. Someone else should be able see your gratitude in the actions you take, as well as those you don’t.
Time is your single finite, non-renewable resource. Let your actions display your gratitude.
If you are grateful for your gifts, what will you do with them? You have an opportunity to make a difference here. There are people who need your help. You were born with the capacity for good, the talents necessary to do something special. The way you express the gratitude you have for the gifts you have been given is to use them.
Your talents aren’t for you alone. They are for you to share, and doing so is proof that you are grateful.
If you are grateful for the help you’ve been given, if you want to demonstrate your gratitude for the help you have been given, you provide help to those who need it. When someone reaches out their hand to pull you up, you use your free hand to reach out and grab another, lifting them up with you.
The evidence that you appreciate the help you have been given is the fact that you multiply it by following the example, and in doing so, create one.
If you are grateful for having been forgiven, you will forgive. If you have been forgiven for what you have done that required some form of pardon, you’ll provide that same gift to those who have in some way wronged you. If you are not willing to forgive, then you are not grateful for having been forgiven.
You take my point by now. If you are grateful for what you have been given, whatever that is, you will recognize that those gifts are not finite, that they can be given again and again without ever being depleted. If you understand the nature of the gift and are grateful for it, you will give it.
