Verna Davis: Remember and be grateful for your many blessings on this day

(Continued)

Moses knew all about people forgetting. In Deuteronomy 8, he told the Israelites: “Be careful you do not forget the Lord. Otherwise when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, and when your flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and when all you have is multiplied, then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord.” You might say your power and your own hands have produced your own wealth. But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth.

Today is not a special day. No anniversary to share with God. But the thing is, do we have so many blessings we have forgotten to be grateful and praise the Lord for all He has given us? Are we so satisfied with what we have, we don’t understand that everything we have is from God?

Let us be careful we do not forget the Lord.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Got a song stuck in your head? Just surrender Ever have a song stuck in your head? You find yourself thinking about the song at random times during the day. Or humming the song at odd times during the day. Or worse yet, when stopped at a traffic signal you find yourself belting it out only to realize that even with the windows rolled up, the person in the car beside you can hear your not-so-musical rendition.
