Where in the world, did gratitude go?
What happened to being thankful for the things that we have, instead of just looking for the next best thing to "fill a void" in our life?
It's saddens me, to think that we approach the Lord with the same kind of disrespect . . .that we show to people all around us. Let me make this very clear. We are NOT ENTITLED to anything. Period. End of Story. It is only because of Christ, that we are allowed the opportunity to approach the throne of God, the Father. This attitude of, "God has to give us this, or that" makes me sick to think about. I realize that we may not say this directly, but we sure do act like it.
I say this so that we can all realize this . . .God is the creator, sustainer, and Lord of everything on this planet. HE OWES US NOTHING! In fact, if we call ourselves Christ followers, We owe him EVERYTHING!
Who of us died for the sins of the world?
Who of us rose from the grave and whipped death's tail?
Next time we think we are owed anything, I pray that we remember our place and who we are really in debt to - Jesus Christ, the one who died for every time we mess up.
It's crazy that the picture below represents so much of America right now.
