Examples of appreciate in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Be grateful to God for the little things. Because, when you are grateful for the little things. God will be moved to give you big or more things to appreciate (Matthew 25:23). Thus, dare to appreciate whatever you have presently. Because, it will multiply even beyond your expectation and imagination. -Emeasoba George

  2. Harry Roque:

    It was of course the height of being unsportsmanlike, but at the same time we appreciate that it's something we have to be sorry about because it should never have had happened.

  3. Donald Trump:

    I’d like to thank the owner of this great hotel, and his incredible wife – she’s an incredible woman – Sheldon Adelson, really incredible people and they’ve been so supportive and we appreciate it.

  4. Blade:

    Frost When was the last time you stopped to appreciate a good sunset- oh yeah that's right. You were born a vampire.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Appreciation gives rise to motivation/multiplication. Let's take this as a case study. When Jesus Christ was faced with the task of feeding a multitude. The scripture says that he (Jesus Christ) first and foremost gave thanks to God. And just because he gave thanks to God. God was motivated to multiply the five loaves of bread/two fishes which he already had. Now that's why he (Jesus Christ) miraclously fed/overfed at a time 5,000 men excluding women and children, scripture reference (Mattew 14 and verse 17 through 21). Anyway, that evidently proves, appreciation truly gives rise to motivation which eventually leads to multiplication. Have you been unappreciative to God/your fellow humans all these while? If YES then, you've got to learn to appreciate your fellow humans. But most importantly, do appreciate God all the time/way even in time of scarcity/insufficiency of resources like money/food stuffs. Because if you dare to appreciate him (God) at all times. Then, he will be motivated to multiply whatever you have until you are wholly gratified/satisfied.
