I don’t want to leave this month without posting this.
It’s something I’ve been working on for several weeks and something God has been teaching me for several years.
I’m still not all that good at it.
But when I am, it makes such a difference!
It’s popular to start the month of November with a call to thankfulness.
That’s a good thing.
We should spend more time thinking about our blessings and being thankful to the God Who provides them.
But often we don’t.
Because we like to think that what we have is the result of what we do or who we are.
That means we don’t owe anybody anything.
Thankfulness is an act of humility and submission because in that moment I must acknowledge I am the recipient of blessing at the hand of another.
That implies obligation.
And I don’t like feeling I owe someone something.
Imbalance is uncomfortable.
It should be.
Because it spurs me on to good deeds and loving relationship which keeps the cycle going.
Thankfulness begets kindness which begets thankfulness which begets kindness.
I want to live in THAT world. ❤
