When Jesus rejoices in the Holy Spirit, He sings a hymn of joy. This is His song of thanksgiving to the Father. It is in expressing gratitude to God that Jesus reveals joy.
Am I a grateful person? Do I start my prayer with thanksgiving or need? Is my attitude toward others one of gratitude?
Dear Jesus, may my heart be filled with joy today. May this be expressed in a spirit of thanksgiving to God and others. May I be grateful.
