We have to show gratitude towards God for the people He has given us. We can be grateful and not be thankful. We also have to show our thankfulness to God for Him sending us his people. Thankfulness must be demonstrated. It is demonstrated by what we do with what we have been given. God has sent His people our way. We want to take responsibility and accountability for what we have been given. We take care of what we have been given and we have to appreciate what we have been given.
