Remember that everything is a blessing. The world owes you nothing and you are entitled to nothing by virtue of your existence. Take every single thing in life, without exception, as a gift and a blessing from God.
Not only will you be so much happier and more content in life, but it will highlight the truth of Scripture when it says that every good and perfect gift comes from God. That is not to say everything that I recognize as a gift, but rather, everything is a gift from God.
This morning the hotel we stayed at ran out of milk during breakfast. There were people whose entire day was ruined because of milk! Rather than being overjoyed at the fact that they had waffles, French toast, hash browns, bagels, coffee, and the list goes on, they complained because they felt they were owed milk. How tragic that a new day - which is itself a tremendous gift and blessing from our Father – was ruined because of a sense of entitlement over something as silly as milk.
Everything is a blessing. Be thankful.
