Having gratitude means to be thankful. The Bible gives us beautiful scriptures in the Old and New Testaments about gratitude and thanksgiving. Here are the top 20 Bible verses on gratitude.
While this article covers 20 bible verses on gratitude, there is one in particular that stands out. 2 Corinthians 10-15 gives us the foundation on generosity and gratitude.
“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”
