Some people don’t understand the importance of being humble and thankful for the things in life. We are blessed daily small and big, but we sometimes don’t take the time to say thank you. Thank you for the greatness, thank you for life, thank you for the blessings. I always have a saying for when I feel like I am not being thankful. “Never let your blessing turn into a lesson.” What do I mean by that?
For example: God may bless you with a house, car, or even a job. You may even be in a better place in life than last year, but if your aren’t humble or thankful. God can turn that blessing into a lesson. How so? I am glad you ask… God can take what was given to you, just so you can appreciate it more. You may lose your house, car, or job, just so you can see how it feels to be without. So your blessings were taken and now you have to learn a lesson from that. The lesson was never to get to relax or show a different side. The same way you got that blessing, keep the same attitude you had to get it. Be humble and stay humble, that’s the path to greatness. Always be thankful for everything, from waking up, to eating, and breathing. The small this are the things we skip from being thankful, but those are the things we miss the most when they are gone.
