     In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ truly believe acts of gratitude not only positively impact our mental health, but they also help build and fortify our relationships with other people. And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” Luke 21: 1-4 NKJV

Biblical Word

     OFFERING – Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6: 7-10 NIV


     2 Corinthians 8: 1-5 – Our friends, we want you to know what God’s grace has accomplished in the churches in Macedonia. They have been severely tested by the troubles they went through; but their joy was so great that they were extremely generous in their giving, even though they are very poor. I can assure you that they gave as much as they could, and even more than they could. Of their own free will they begged us and pleaded for the privilege of having a part in helping God’s people in Judea. GNT


     Gratitude and Giving Back – We at VAL-TE’ also believe there is a clear and significant link between gratitude and behaviors that help society as a whole. Gratitude is a key ingredient in the social rules of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit, which essentially means that feeling grateful helps people “give back” what they have received. It encourages us to return favors to our friends, neighbors and family members. And gratitude inspires us to help others in society as a whole. The King will reply, ‘I tell you, whenever you refused to help one of these least important ones, you refused to help me.’
