VI. A Transformative Gratitude

1) Each day come up with 3 things you are grateful for and add them to a list. At the end of the week reflect and look for themes in your gratitude.

2) Spend time this week considering how all that is good in life is a gift from God. How can you use these gifts to affect your community?
3) Take the time this week to contact someone in your life and tell them that you are grateful for them.

1) What are gifts in life that you may have taken for granted or forgotten?

2) How do you think God is calling you to use the gifts you have in life for the Kingdom of God?

3) How has gratitude made you more empathetic and aware in life? If it hasn't, what do you think will happen inside of you if you choose to use gratitude in this way?

4) How do you think following Christ and gratitude are related to one another?
We encourage you to use Facebook, Instagram, and other social media to share images, quotes, links, or what you've learned from this week's message and YouVersion message notes. Social media can also be a great way of inviting your friends to worship and special events.
