In his recent book Barking to the Choir, the Jesuit Fr. Greg Boyle reminds us that “it is the grateful heart that transforms the world.” Why I believe this to be true is that I find when I am able to truly get in touch with the blessings I am given, it is then that I can reach out in love to others. It is that generosity that has the potential to change the world around me.
This week, I invite you to hearken back to your own recent Thanksgiving Day celebration. For what did you find yourself giving thanks? How can you reach out in love to share that blessing with someone else?
