Word Of The Month

“Appreciation can make a day, even change a life.

Your willingness to put it all into words is all that is necessary.”

- Margaret Cousins, writer


The antidote to discontentment is gratitude. The more we learn to give thanks, the happier we are and the fewer complaints we  will have!


We are generally courteous.  Yet I feel that we (includes me) do not appreciate and thank people as often and as much as we should. We complain more than we compliment. That is not good for our emotional health. It also discourages those who serve us.


Jesus told us, in the parable of the talents, that God commended His servants, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” (Matthew 25:21, 23)  As God’s servant, I am waiting to hear these words when I meet Him. We should follow God’s example and commend those who have served us well.


Our church dedicates every September as the Appreciation Month. We ask you to thank the members and staff who serve in our church and our community services. More than 300 persons  use their God-given talents and gifts to carry out the mission of EL in the different congregations and ministries. They do it for the Lord and we are blessed. Let us thank them!


“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:11


Cultivate a heart of gratitude and the habit of saying, “Thank you” to all who serve you. It makes you a HAPPIER PERSON!
