Title: “Show Gratitude: Honoring Those Who Have Been a Blessing to You”

Scripture Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV) – “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”


In our journey through life, we encounter countless individuals who leave a lasting impact on our hearts and souls. These are the ones who stand by us in times of need, encourage us when we’re discouraged, and lift us up when we’re down. In this devotional, titled “Show Gratitude,” let’s explore the importance of expressing gratitude to the people who have been a blessing to us and honoring their impact on our lives.

Reflect on the words of the apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, where he encourages us to give thanks in all circumstances. Gratitude is not only a virtue but also a commandment from God. It is an expression of humility and acknowledgment that every good gift comes from above. As we reflect on the blessings we’ve received from others, let us cultivate a spirit of gratitude and honor those who have impacted our lives.

Gratitude has the power to transform relationships and cultivate a culture of kindness and appreciation. When we express gratitude to others, we not only acknowledge their contributions but also affirm their worth and value. Gratitude strengthens bonds, fosters goodwill, and encourages others to continue blessing those around them. It is a ripple effect that spreads positivity and joy wherever it goes.

There are countless ways to show gratitude to the people who have been a blessing to us. It can be as simple as saying “thank you” or writing a heartfelt note expressing appreciation. We can also show gratitude through acts of kindness, service, and generosity. Taking the time to acknowledge and honor the impact someone has had on our lives can make a profound difference in their day and serve as a reminder of the power of love and kindness.

Take a moment to reflect on the individuals who have been a blessing to you. Whether it’s family members, friends, mentors, or colleagues, consider the ways they have impacted your life for the better. Make a deliberate effort to show gratitude to them, whether through words of affirmation, acts of service, or quality time together. Let them know how much their kindness and support mean to you, and honor their role in shaping who you are today.


Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of relationships and the people you’ve placed in our lives to bless and encourage us. Help us to cultivate a spirit of gratitude and to show appreciation to those who have been a blessing to us. Give us the words to express our thanks and the opportunity to honor others for their kindness and generosity. May our lives be a reflection of your love and grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
