Each year when Christmas ends, we seem to move almost immediately to making resolutions for the New Year. Is 2015 the year in which we will become thinner, more respected in our fields and more financially stable? While none of these things are negative in and of themselves, it seems that we have passed over the spirit of reflection and gratitude that should naturally occur at the end of each year. After all, God just came to earth as a little child on Christmas; surely we can recognize the many gifts that He has blessed us with! While the results might seem less tangible than losing a few pounds or gaining a few dollars, along with offering glory to God who gives us all of life’s blessings, there are clear psychological benefits that come from expressing gratitude.
