It is so easy to start taking things for granted and begin to think we are entitled to this or that. You know, “we are trying to do the right things, live in a manner that is right in the eyes of others, keep our yard looking nice, helping as we can with community things and at church, you know be the good citizen we’re supposed to be, I deserve……..”
We get so busy “doing” we don’t take much time to sit back and be thankful for what God has done for us and what we have as a result of just living in America. One wisely said “ingratitude is one of the greatest sins amongst God’s people.” It is so easy to slip into the habit of wanting our comforts met, our desires to be accomplished that we fail to “Give thanks to the Lord for who He is and what He has done for our life.”
It is good for me to sit back on this beautiful rainy morning and not allow this slippage to hit my life. Instead join me in taking a little time to say “Thank You Lord for all you have done for us, and the glory that awaits each of us for all eternity.”
May we live with a “Grateful” heart and not slip down into ingratitude as is so easy to do.
Striving together for His glory,
