An interesting phrase sparked my interest today. The phrase in question was “Be Thankful!” The simplicity of this phrase does not diminish the high level of power behind it. So often we tend to direct our focus on what we do not have. We even tend to become envious of others and their materials possessions. We should not adopt this state of mind. I knew a girl who indicated to her parents that she desired a 2010 Ford Mustang once she got her license. The day arrived when she received her license and her parents bought her a Ford Mustang. The girl saw the mustang and she wasn’t happy because it was a 2008 Ford Mustang and not a 2010. There are so many people in this world that wish they could have a 2008 Ford Mustang.
We should be thankful for what we have. There are so many people in this world who aren’t as fortunate as we are. Many people don’t even know where their next meal will come from. The fact that you are reading this blog entry illustrates how blessed you are. Don’t resort to complaining about not having a Mercedes when you own a vehicle that gets you from point A to point B. There are many things I am thankful for. I’m thankful for my health, a roof over my head, a car to drive, a great family, friends, and the few ounces of Cheerios I have left in my cupboard. Not matter what our situation may be; we can always give thanks to man above for the blessings we have received.
