Today I, ____________________, will have a spirit of gratitude to the Lord in all that I do and say.
“He who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious.” – For the Strength of Youth quoting Doctrine and Covenants 78:19
I, ____________________, will strive to receive all things with thankfulness today.
“In the 59th section of the Doctrine and Covenants, we have a very significant statement:
““Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things.
““Thou shalt offer a sacrifice unto the Lord thy God in righteousness, even that of a broken heart and a contrite spirit.” (D&C 59:7–8.)
“And then the Lord goes on to talk about the Sabbath day:
““And that thou mayest more fully keep thyself unspotted from the world, thou shalt go to the house of prayer and offer up thy sacraments upon my holy day,” and so on. (D&C 59:9.)
“Then as He concludes that statement on the Sabbath day, He adds:
““And inasmuch as ye do these things with thanksgiving, with cheerful hearts and countenances, …
““Verily I say, that inasmuch as ye do this, the fulness of the earth is yours”” – Receive All Things with Thankfulness by Ezra Taft Benson, emphasis added.
