Usually, good deeds produce good results. Thanking God is a good deed, so it logically follows that it should result in benefits to the grateful person
There are many benefits to being grateful to God but today I want to focus on just three.
One of the biggest benefits is happiness. We can thank genuinely only when we are content. A content person is a happy person. Saying thank you can make you happy just as receiving thanks does. When you thank God as a habit, you actually become conscious of the numerous blessings you have received; this lifts up your spirits.
Secondly, gratitude attracts even more blessings; just as a magnet attracts iron - peace, protection, and defense against sin. To be honest, behind all the rat race and daily toil, don’t we all basically want peace of mind and safety (of mind, body and soul)?
Improved Quality of Life
Finally, the third benefit of thanksgiving is - YOU; as a person, you will become more positive and optimistic. This not only improves your outlook on life but is also scientifically proven that people prefer the company of positive people. Your social life gets boosted, which in itself is a mother of so many other opportunities. Bottom line, in one way or another, your quality of life will improve.
In summary, gratitude is a life-enhancing technique. Don’t spend thousands of dollars to learn the secrets of a better life. Start by being thankful. Then see how it goes. Being grateful to God opens up the heavens and you will be showered upon by more favors from God.
