Ungratefulness Leads Nowhere Fast

park-birdsI read a comic where the main character was feeding popcorn to the birds in the park. One of the birds said, “We’re tired of popcorn, can you bring us some juicy bugs?”
I’m thinking, with a smile on my face and a chuckle in my belly, that’s me at times. How many times have I cried out to Jesus from a lack of contentment or lack of progress in this life changing process of the Spirit, only to open a door to my drug of choice?
One way to keep that door shut is to “be thankful in all circumstances.” (1 Thess. 5:18) In Christ, we already have so much; so be thankful for what He’s already done for you. Be thankful for what He’s already given you. Be thankful for where you’re at now.
You have all you need at this very moment and will have all you need in the next one because of Jesus. Be thankful for this truth by faith. It will keep you close to Jesus, the very source of all you need.
