If you were to make a list of your top ten blessings what would they be? I wonder how many of them would be spiritual and how many material. I have been thinking about how I am so blessed to live where I live and do what I do. I have been thinking about how blessed I am to have a home and food to eat. I have been thinking about how blessed I am to have different clothes to wear each day and a car to drive places. But none of those hold a candle to the blessings we have in Christ. The blessings Christ brings don’t count only for the rich or materially nourished. They count for everyone: big or small, rich or poor, you name it.
We are blessed to have a spiritual family. We are blessed to have a spiritual home. We are blessed with new spiritual clothing. We are blessed to have a perfect Father. We are blessed to have new chairs to sit in near Christ. We are blessed with a new song to sing. We are blessed to have been brought back to life. We are blessed with every spiritual blessing!!!
What a wonderful God of grace we serve! How well do our prayers of thanksgiving reflect the greater blessings?
