Dear friends the story below touched my soul. We all know very well that we must have gratitude for Almighty’s mercies. Yet we rush to take credit for achievements as we feel it’s only due to the hard work we have put in. Little do we realise that success could never have happened without the grace of God. For example “Are we in control of every breath that we take”?
It takes a warm slice of bread to soak in the butter put on it. It doesn’t matter how much butter we put, but if the bread is cold the butter will stay on the surface only. Bite into it and you will see how different the two taste! It is the same bread and same butter but a world of difference in taste.
And so is it with the ‘blessings’ in our life. It doesn’t matter how abundantly HE blesses us, but if we are not truly gracious in our acceptance, how can those blessings ever make a change in our lives? Pretty much like the layer of butter on cold bread, blessings not graciously and wholeheartedly embraced continue to remain on the periphery and fail to make any positive change in life.
Acknowledge your blessings with humility.
‘Accept’ with gratitude and understand that whatever we achieve is not only due to our own efforts but His grace.
Keep your bread warm.
Let the butter soak in.
Bathed in the richness of this butter, every bite, every morsel then is bound to taste divine.
“Gratitude must be deep and sincere and not perfunctory”.
Cheers and be happy always! 😎😎
