My children find ways to convict me each day it seems…and they don’t even know it. Yesterday they had a pretty great day in terms of kids…fun activities, good food, lots of mommy time…and yet they complained. Soooo…they had to listen to the mommy lecture of how they were given so much in which to be thankful, and instead of being happy or thanking mommy they found things to complain about.
Don’t get me wrong, my kids are pretty good with manners, but I think we all get used to being treated a certain way…and they have a pretty good life…thanks to God! 🙂
Not very long after I gave them the lecture, it hit me that we all, me included if not me especially, take for granted what God gives us on a daily basis. We are richly blessed…RICHLY BLESSED! We all have trials…some little, some rather large…but looking at the bigger picture, wow! We need to be thanking God first…abundantly…and maybe we will find less to complain to Him about.
