Maundy Thursday — #40WordPrayer on GRATITUDE
What shall I return to God for all God’s bounty to me?
— Psalm 116:12 alt
God, why should we do what we do?
Live humbly so others will be humble?
Seek justice so others will be just?
Show kindness so others will be kind?
No, we are . . . humble, because you’ve lived humbly;
just, because you’ve shown justice;
kind, because you’ve been kind.
Being thankful is not the end of our journey of gratitude. Our gratitude must translate into a life of service to others. If we fail to live our thankfulness outside of ourselves, we become hoarders of grace, which is no way to show gratitude and no way to live thankfully.
