“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” -W.T. Purkiser
Today’s focus is on the same accord as the two previous messages. Yesterday we discussed being thankful for even the hard lessons and using your experiences for a bigger purpose. The day before, we touched on being a blessing to others. It is one thing to say you are grateful for your blessings, but entirely another to express gratitude in the form of action. So Purkiser took it a step further and put the two together, thereby giving you a way to measure your thanks by the way in which you use your blessings. Take a baby step today by doing a good deed. When you do a good deed, you expect nothing in return. Doing good deeds make you feel just as good, if not better than the receiver. If you make it a practice to do good deeds, brainstorm with your team or ask questions as to how your business can better serve employees and customers, you will easily see a way to be a blessing and show your thanks. Today, shows thanks by doing at least 2 good deeds.
