Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-7 KJV)
What do you think for? We have a lot of thank for that we received in our lives, such as material things. But sometimes, we often forget to give thank to our God. The word blessing is misinterpreting in Christian churches.
Too many televangelists use the word “blessing” is to get something from God rather than just satisfying things we have. Israelites blamed God and Moses after they escaped from Egyptians. They wanted to receive comfortable life rather than working out their problems. They did not like to listen to Moses because it was too long process to follow God’s direction to make to the Promise Land. Instead, they made themselves the golden image of god to make a new religion.
This is the time for the holiday season. Many people are busy to get ready for holidays. It is so easy for us to busy ourselves to be ready for holidays. We may have to buy Christmas tree and decorations and gifts for our people. Without realizing that most Christian holidays arrived from the pagan religion, we would begin ourselves busy to celebrate this holiday with our families and churches.
As we are celebrating this holiday season, we should thank God for everything that He had done for us. What He had done for you in this year? Take a moment to thank God for everything He had provided in your life.
