This weekend had brought to thoughts to mind for me and its that people tend to be ungrateful, or actually I don't want to say ungrateful but I want to say they are so busy looking out at what others have that they don't realize what's right there in front of them, all the blessings that God has given them and I'm no stranger to this, we've all done it. We wake up each day, go about our day looking at what others have and are given and their opportunities yet never realize that God woke then up, filled their lungs with air, gave them good health, food for breakfast, a warm house and bed to sleep in. A family to spend time with, a job to make money and so many other things so small to realize!
The message for this weekend is that God truly blesses us but we can't see past our own selfish desires to realize that somewhere in the world someone is homeless, sleeping in the cold, wet streets under a bridge, they went to sleep without a meal all day, their cloths are dirty and tattered. They have no money or job; no family to spend time with and hardly any one will look them in the eye as they sit on the corner asking for your spare change!
How often do you thank God for all he has done for you? How often do you thank him for your family, job, car, health, home and spouse? Or are you quicker to complain about these things? The things we have, somewhere in the world, someone is lacking and could only dream of having! Try to be more thankful and less resentful!
