We hear to "give thanks in all circumstances". Unless we have given all that we have to help someone else, can we really be grateful for someone's sacrifice for us? Can we really appreciate someone doing our laudry for us, UNLESS WE'VE DONE THE LAUNDRY OURSELVES? Why do we think of Blessings and Gifts in perspective to ourselves? Perhaps we still don't understand the difference between actions others may take on our behalf (that has a hidden agenda, for their benefit); and those actions which originate in the "WILL" for good that is directed toward us. "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above..." (James 1:17). Maybe we are not as grateful as we should be for other's acts of kindness UNLESS WE'VE DONE THE LAUNDRY OURSELVES.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
