Meaningful Monday Message

Thoughtless Thoughtfulness

“Gratitude is the flowering of a seed of kindness; ingratitude is the dead inactivity of a seed dropped on stone.”
– William George Jordan.

  1. “Have you ever taken a moment to think about the countless small acts of kindness you receive daily that go unnoticed or unacknowledged?”
  2. “When was the last time you felt truly grateful for something someone did for you, but you never actually expressed it? What stopped you?”
  3. “Can you recall a time when someone’s effort or kindness towards you went unrecognized? How might that have made them feel?”


  1.  “Do you find yourself feeling disappointed or unappreciated when your acts of kindness or hard work aren’t acknowledged? Why do you think that is?”
  2. “How often do you do something nice for others with the expectation of being thanked or recognized, and how does it affect your motivation to do good?”
  3. “Have you ever caught yourself helping someone primarily for recognition or reward rather than from the heart? What does this reveal about our need for external validation?”
