Spiritual Goal, A Year of Coming Unto Christ by Developing Christlike Attributes: November is Gratitude

 Spiritual Goal, A Year of Coming Unto Christ by Developing Christlike Attributes: November is Gratitude,

In January, I had this thought that I wanted to come more unto the Savior. So I decided to start focusing on His attributes. Each month there will be a Christlike attribute focus. We focused on Faith in Christ for JanuaryHope in FebruaryCharity and Love in MarchVirtue in AprilKnowledge in MayPatience in JuneDiligence in AugustSeptember was Obedience and October was Teacher.  I love being more intentional in striving to be more like my Savior. You could do this individually. Or  you could invite your Relief Society Sisters, Ministering sisters, friends or Young Women to engage in the study and development as well.

 Here is the schedule for the year:

This month we get to focus on and study about gratitude. I felt that this was fitting with Thanksgiving coming up. Our Savior was the greatest example of gratitude, He always expressed gratitude to His Father and gave all of the glory to Him. The Lord says, “He who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious” (Doctrine and Covenants 78:19).

In the Gospel Topics for Gratitude it says, "Gratitude is a feeling of appreciation and thankfulness for blessings or benefits we have received. As we cultivate a grateful attitude, we are more likely to be happy and spiritually strong. We should regularly express our gratitude to God for the blessings He gives us and to others for the kind acts they do for us."

I echo those words. Gratitude puts us in a more happier mood, because we are focusing on all that we do have, instead of dwelling on what we lack.
