The Power of Gratitude

Gratitude is not seasonal; it is not a human instinct to be aroused on occasion by appeals to personal sense. Gratitude is not human emotionalism; it is not a conditional human virtue. Gratitude is the activating spiritual element of joy.

In the Manual of The Mother Church, Mrs. Eddy writes, "Gratitude and love should abide in every heart each day of all the years." Man., Art. XVII, Sect. 2; Gratitude is not something to be held in reserve for special showing at prearranged times. Gratitude springs from the understanding that God and man coexist and are coeternal.
