Sunday Lessons

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a Sunday Lessons post.. sorry about that.

We wrapped up the Better Days series at Cross Point today with a message on “Gratitude”… fitting of course for the week of Thanksgiving.   Although it was the type of message that most of us will hear this week, Pete’s intentionality with it somehow caused it to resonate differently for me.

There were plenty of great quotables from his message but the lesson that sticks out to me the most is this:

“Gratitude is never invisible or silent.”

I’m ashamed at the number of times I’ve gone about my day thinking of the things that I’m grateful for with my team, but failing to verbalize them.

If I didn’t say it, it’s as if I didn’t think it.  My team will never benefit from appreciation left unsaid.

Do you ever fall into this trap?  Maybe this is the week to start speaking up.

    “If I didn’t say it, it’s as if I didn’t think it.”  That’s something to think about right there…
