Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Express Gratitude

October 10th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is to Express Gratitude.

Saying “Thank you” to someone expresses gratitude and shows our appreciation for someone’s influence in our lives.

It is interesting to note how Paul the Apostle expresses thanks.

He said in Philippians 1:3, “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel.”

He told Philemon in verse 4, “I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your love for all his holy people and your faith in the Lord Jesus.”

There is a pattern by which Paul expresses thanks to God for particular churches or individuals. And then he specifically identifies the reason for his gratefulness.

Expressing gratitude is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
