At the school system where I work, we get paid one per month. The money is always direct-deposited into our accounts on the last day of the month. But when I checked my account yesterday, there was no money. I panicked! The Central office sent out a system-wide Email explaining that they "forgot" to release the money. I am serious; they actually said "forgot". They rushed paper checks to everyone today. How does one forget to do what they have done every month for years? There sure were a lot of unhappy campers around the system.
How do we sometimes "forget" to thank God for all He's done for us? I know I am guilty of asking Him for more things I don't have than thanking Him for things I do have. Do you think that hurts God? I need to re-prioritize. I need to be more thankful than I have been. Instead of flipping out when I don't see my money right away, maybe I should next time just thank God I have a job.
Lord, thank-you for everything You do for me. Help me to try to make a list tonight of those things You have blessed me with. In Jesus name, Amen.
