Thought for the day 20th of August 2011
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” 1Thessalonians 5:18.
God expects gratitude from you. You are alive because He is gracious and merciful for you. If you are a talented person, you can be sure of one thing, He gave you those talents. Another person has fewer talents because he got less. Everything that we have can be developed, but we should never forget the source of all the blessings that we have. Don’t look around at those who have more and be jealous. Use what God has given you.
And do look at those who have less and be arrogant. Gifts we have were not meant for us to be proud of, but grateful for. One day we will leave this world and we will take nothing with us, neither talents, nor money, nor any other thing. Be wise and live with a grateful heart today and the blessings that you have will increase. After all, real life, joy and love start from within and are finally expressed without. Learn to be thankful to God. It does not matter in what circumstances you live.
Maybe you think that you do not have anything to thank God for. This is because you do not believe He is or you look too much around at people who live better than you do. However, you should never forget that the winner is not the person who dies with most toys. The winner is the person who is able to enjoy life and cherish gratitude in his heart under all circumstances. Let Jesus strengthen you in your attempts to live a life that is full of joy and gratitude. Do your own part and He will do His. God bless you.
