So, I was going into Publix yesterday evening. Now, anyone who really knows me knows that there are 2 places I absolutely HATE to go-------Publix and Wal-Mart! Hate it! Would rather take a beatin! Well, as I was mumbling to myself, God instantly brought to my remembrance the people in China that I met while on our missions trip. They would have loved to be able to go to Publix. I was so convicted! I just whispered “God, forgive me.” Forgive me for being so selfish. I am so blessed to be able to go to Publix and buy the food my family needs. I am so blessed to have a job that supplies the money I need to pay for that food. My friends in China had nothing! When I say nothing, I mean nothing! They are so poor and impoverished. Yet, they were thankful for everything they had and they were so happy!!!! We are a selfish people. I challenge you to begin to think of the good. When I mop (which I hate) I am thankful I have floors and not dirt. When I wash clothes, I am thankful I have them and a washer and don’t have to do it by hand. You get the point….let’s start counting our blessings!
