DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

ARE YOU STILL UNGRATEFUL❓
Two men were walking along one summer day. Soon, it became too hot to go any further and seeing a large plane tree nearby, they threw themselves on the ground to rest in its shade. Gazing up into the branches, one man said to the other, what a useless tree this is; it does not have fruit or nuts that we can eat and we cannot even use it’s wood for anything.” Don’t be so ungrateful” rustled the tree in reply, “I am being extremely useful to you at this very moment, shielding you from the hot sun and you call me a good for nothing.”
Very often, our minds are full of thoughts concerning our needs that we tend to forget to be thankful for the little graces we have received. When was the last time that you sat down to remember the common favours you get daily? Have you thought about about how much you might be required to pay for the air you breathe, if it was not freely given to you? How about the ability to freely urinate and defecate? What about the warmth you get from sunshine and the privilege of sleeping and waking up?
In truth, you are not alive because you drank five alive. It was not your alarm clock that woke you up this morning. Join the psalmist to vow not to forget all of God’s goodness and benefits to you. Make today, a day of thanksgiving. The Lord has indeed been kind enough to us since the beginning of this year. Try recounting all your blessings and start thanking Him.
Those who appreciate little favour get more.
Lord, help me to be more grateful.
BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
2 Chronicles 25-27; Luke 9:37-62
