Consider for a moment the power of the two simple words “thank you.” This simple phrase validates other people as individuals who matter to us and to God. Instead of taking them for granted, we humble ourselves and honor them. When we thank them for their actions or attitude, we affirm the difference they are making in the world. We acknowledge that they had a choice to make and that their choice has value. For someone today, hearing “thank you” may be life-changing. Will they hear it from you?

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.—Proverbs 16:24

Prayer: God, open our eyes to see the people around us, at home, at church, in our workplaces and community. May our words be sweet to people’s souls, bringing life to them in Jesus’ name. In His name, we ask you to use us to honor people that others overlook, amen.
