Woodlawn Family Bible Study
BIBLE READING: Luke 17:11-19
There is tremendous power in showing gratitude. Francesca Gino, an Associate Professor at the Harvard School of Business, conducted and published a study called “Sidetracked: Why Our Decisions Get Derailed and How We Can Stick to Our Plan.” Gino found that “Receiving expressions of gratitude makes us feel a heightened sense of self-worth, and that in turn triggers other helpful behaviors toward both the person we are helping and other people, too.” That just means that when we receive words or acts of gratitude we feel so good about ourselves we are more likely to pass along other positive expressions.
Application: Read the Parable of the Good Samaritan, and then go out of your way to help people and show them gratitude. In doing so, you just may spark a revelation.
