THANKFULNESS

A foursome of senior golfers hit the course with waning enthusiasm for the sport. “These hills are getting steeper as the years go by,” one complained. “These fairways seem to be getting longer too,” said one of the others. “The sand traps seem to be bigger than I remember them too,” said the third senior.

After hearing enough from his buddies, the oldest and the wisest of the four of them at 87 years old, piped up and said, “My friends, just be thankful we’re still on this side of the grass!”

It is easy to find things to complain about (and some people seem to enjoy doing it!). Very few things around us are just the way we would like them if we were living in an “ideal” world. However, we need to be careful that we do not get so caught up in our complaints that we overlook the great blessings that abound in our lives.

“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 The. 5:18).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
