Have you ever had a time when you were without electricity, running water, gas, technology, or vehicles? Recall how relieved you were when those amenities once again became available. Today, thank God for those creature comforts. Thank Him that He has provided not only the essentials needed for everyday life but the non-essentials that make our days easier and comfortable. Thank Him for giving us wisdom on how to make our lives more convenient. Thank Him for hot water, the internet that keeps us connected to our loved ones, elevators, air conditioning, ice, and heat. Thank Him in advance for putting within your heart a new appreciation for the things that make our days easier. Ask Him to help you no matter what your state, be it plenty or scarce, to be content.
Today's scripture readings: Psalm 8:4-12, Philippians 4:12-13, and 1 Thessalonians 5:18
