There is tremendous power in showing gratitude. Francesca Gino, an Associate Professor at the Harvard School of Business, conducted a study and published it; It was called “Sidetracked: Why Our Decisions Get Derailed and How We Can Stick to Our Plan”. Gino found that “Receiving expressions of gratitude makes us feel a heightened sense of self-worth, and that in turn triggers other helpful behaviors toward both the person we are helping and other people, too”. That just means that when we receive words or acts of gratitude, we feel so good about ourselves that we are more likely to pass along other positive expressions. In Luke 17.11, we see the parable of the Good Samaritan.
