Attention Gives Importance

Reflect

Where we place our focus determines our attitude. So even people in prison could see beyond the bars—Saint Paul, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Luther King Jr. did some of their best writing from jail. When we start down a familiar mental rut (“Why do I get stuck with all the work around here?”), we can redirect that channel, finding something to appreciate.


Pray

Thank you, God,
f
or our marvelous brains.
Help us
direct our thought c
hannels
into thanks,
n
ot worry or regret.
Amen.


Act

If you’re able, take a walk outdoors. When you return, record three things in your gratitude journal. For instance: a shady canopy of trees, the music of river or stream, many shades of green.
