We all have different experiences being a volunteer....and working with them.
Recently, I have had the opportunity to work with some very gracious people....
and some....not so much.
It has blown my mind how entitled some people are...and how others are spilling over with gratitude.
The Bible is very clear that grace and gratitude are not only important- but a command.
Being gracious is one of the very ways we can reflect His Light....and His Love.
"But as you excel in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge,
see that you excel in the act of grace also." -2 Corinthians 8:7
A gracious response, whether for a big or small act....goes a long way.
And also: contrary to popular concern- it will NOT kill you.
Do yourself and someone else a favor today...go find someone that you don't NEED to show appreciation for...and do it.
God, Thank YOU for Your unspeakable love, patience and forgiveness....
In His Dust,
