Gratitude is a vaccine, an antitoxin, and an antiseptic. (John Henry Jowett, 19th-20th century British preacher and author)

Is it true that a grateful heart will protect you or overcome something that might be hurtful? It would be wise, then, to develop a constant attitude of gratitude. Tom Stoddard goes a step further in his comment: “A healthy attitude is contagious, but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.” Being thankful, then, not only benefits you but those you influence, as well.

Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God (Psalm 50:14). Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
