ABILITY TO SERVE
Whether at work or play, we should be grateful for the ability to do all the things we can do. There are some people who don’t have a job and long to have work while others dread their jobs and grumble about having to go to work. There are some who would love to be able to get out and do things in the yard but are unable to do so and there are those who complain about having to get the yard work done. Whatever we do, we need to do in gratitude knowing God has given us the bodies with the ability to do these things so we can serve Him and others.
1 Timothy 1:12 “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do his work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve him,” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to look around and see what we can really be grateful about. We have abilities to work and play but sometimes we forget that it is a blessing from You. Help us to find good things as we go through this day and remember to be grateful that we are able to do all that we do because you allow us to. Thank You for this day. Thank You for the strength You give us to serve. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
