Gratitude

Humanist Thought of the Week Oct 16 2007

Gratitude

For many people, gratitude is about thanking god.

As Humanists, we are aware that good things come from good people.

We are grateful to the people around us who perform small and large acts of kindness everyday.

And while we seek to do good for others

It is also important to remember how to receive a gift of kindness.

Jacques Maritain a French philosopher said, “Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy.”

Being grateful of others isn’t just polite.

Genuine gratitude actually helps encourage generosity in others. 

What are you grateful for?
