Bible Activities About Gratitude

Gratitude is a perspective that affirms appreciation for the blessings one has. From a biblical perspective, it includes a realization that such blessings come from God, despite a failure to deserve such benefits. Preschoolers and children, of course, cannot understand the concept of gratitude this broadly, but they can be reminded of the importance of having and expressing appreciation to God for every blessing. By highlighting gratitude in the lives of various Bible characters, the activities below introduce and reinforce the idea of its importance in the life of every man and woman, boy and girl.
