What if you only had the things today, that you thanked God for yesterday?
Interesting thought right?! (yes, I stole this from The Message on XM, but some of you don’t listen…) The idea here is not to take this and say “God, thank you for the new car you are going to give me tomorrow!” It is to remind us to be thankful for all the things that we have today. Sometimes it is far too easy to get caught up in self pity and wonder why God isn’t giving us the things we are praying for (especially when we think we deserve them). Remember, we don’t deserve anything but punishment for our sins. Thank you God, for not giving us what we deserve!
Take some time today to thank God for all the things that he has blessed you with.
