A few years ago, our family stopped sharing around the Thanksgiving table the things we were grateful for. Our kids were getting older, the crowd at the table was getting larger, and it started feeling contrived, so I stopped bringing it up (I think everybody has secretly relieved).
But that doesn’t mean that those on the spiritual journey shouldn’t stir themselves up for gratitude and thankfulness. It is one of the most important things we do for our souls.
Have a listen. Listen to expand this quote from about 300 years ago…
“Religion is grace, ethics is gratitude.”
