Much has been said on the subject of gratitude, from Christians and non-Christians alike.

Research has shown that cultivating a thankful heart brings many benefits, including improved physical health, emotional well-being, and quality of sleep. People who are habitually grateful also have stronger relationships as well as higher self-esteem.

We shouldn’t be surprised at these advantages. After all, God commands us to be grateful, and His commands are for the good of His children (Deuteronomy 10:12-13).

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (I Thessalonians 5:18)

Yes, there are plenty of great reasons to teach our kids to be grateful, but it turns out that the very best reasons are the ones God gives us in the pages of His Word.

I shared eight biblical reasons for teaching kids thankfulness in a recent post at Intoxicated on Life. You can read my post here, just a click away!
