Gratitude is a great discipline your should teach your children. Pray and train your children to be grateful beings. Let’s take a look at this psalm.
O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
Ps 98:1 (KJV)
What a psalm!
Do you remember the song of Moses and Miriam and the children of Israel? After they crossed the red sea? These were grateful beings. Take a look at a part of their song of gratitude.
And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
Ex 15:21 (KJV)
What does this mean?
It means we should learn to give God the glory after every battle we fight. We should learn to be grateful beings.
Now, these days, we no longer fight physically, because the bible says;
For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,
2 Cor 10:4 (AMP)
But whenever we do something through the help of God, we should always give him all the praise.
Parents, let’s always encourage our children to be grateful unto God even in the seemingly minute things. That way, they will learn to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Teach your children to be grateful beings.
My children are grateful in the name of Jesus. Amen
Be deliberate about your act of gratitude
My children are grateful beings.
