It’s not an easy thing to be grateful. Not when you’re sick, when you’ve lost someone close to you, or when your life is just a mess of bills and stress. But regardless of what’s happening in life, we can always find something to be thankful for. There are countless reasons why we should be grateful—the fact that we have the ability to feel love, happiness, and joy; the simple fact that we’re alive; our friends and family who support us through thick and thin; even our mistakes teach us valuable lessons—and these Christian quotes about gratitude will encourage you every step along the way!
1. Inspiring Christian Quotes about Gratitude
Here are some Christian Gratitude Quotes from the Bible and famous Christians:
- “Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced, discharged, and received.” – F.P. Jones
- “Gratitude is the most beautiful of all flowers, and happiness comes in its wake like a gentle breeze that follows the storm clouds away.” – Robert G. Ingersoll
- “We don’t have to be great or upper-class people; we can be just plain folks who do our best to live righteously, live selflessly, and enjoy our lives while we’re here on earth. That’s what makes us happy—not wealth or fame but contentment with what God has given us.” – Billy Graham
2. 1 Corinthians 15:57
Gratitude is a great way to show your appreciation for the things God has done in your life. Gratitude is also a way to show God that you are thankful for him and all of his blessings. When we are grateful, it shows others that we appreciate them too!
We can be grateful in many ways:
- thankfulness when someone does us a favor
- appreciation when people say nice things about us
- joy at receiving gifts or compliments
3. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
- Be thankful in all circumstances.
- Be thankful for the good things in your life.
- Be thankful for the bad things in your life.
- Be thankful for the things that you cannot control and cannot change, such as health issues, disabilities, or a difficult job market. These can be very humbling experiences that remind us of our dependence on God’s grace and mercy instead of on our own strength or intelligence (Romans 5:1).
- Be grateful for all people because they are created by God and have value because of him (1 Corinthians 7:19). We should not only thank those who are kind to us but also those who mistreat us (Matthew 5:44; 1 Thessalonians 5:18).
4. 2 Corinthians 4:15
- I will joyfully boast of you to my fellow believers.
- I am writing a letter, but it is not about this problem; it is to let you know that we are here in the city of Corinth and are safe and sound. Our journey from Macedonia was very difficult because we had a headwind for most of the trip. We were battered by storms and could not make much progress under sail because there were so many islands blocking our way.
- In addition to being thankful, we should also be content with what we have been given by God. He has given us many things, including life itself! Every day when we wake up it’s an act of gratitude just knowing that we’re alive! Life is wonderful—we should never take this gift for granted or forget how precious it really is!
5. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
I am thankful for the things I have and I am thankful for the things I don’t have.
I am thankful for what I can’t have because it’s a chance to practice contentment.
I’m thankful that it’s not raining today because my lawn needs to be cut. And on that note, if you live in an area where it rains daily or even weekly, count your blessings! You are blessed with something so many people take for granted: weather that doesn’t swallow everything up in a monsoon every few days (or hours).
We often want what we don’t have, but sometimes when we get it there’s a whole new set of problems associated with it—not just financial ones either! When someone buys themselves a fancy car or house without being able to afford both payments on them at once…and then has trouble paying either one…this is an example of wanting what you cannot have bringing trouble into one’s life rather than joy and peace—but this is no reason not to be grateful anyway! The Bible says: “Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself…if you do not expect anything from anyone else but God himself.”
6. 2 Timothy 1:3-4
2 Timothy 1:3-4
Paul writes to a young pastor named Timothy, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control.”
The word “spirit” here is not just the breath that keeps our bodies alive but also the part of us that enables us to think, feel and act. The spirit of fear tries to control your thoughts and actions by preventing you from seeing the truth about yourself or others; it makes you doubt yourself and others. Since this kind of spirit doesn’t come from God, we need to reject it as soon as possible! Instead, we should ask God for His Spirit so that He can help us live out His power which comes through mutual submission to one another (Ephesians 5:21).
