Blessings

Bible Reading: 2 Peter 1:3-8
Monday, February 8, 2016

BlessingsWhen we are going through difficult times, it is hard to think about the blessings that God gives us. We may think only about the things that are going wrong and forget about the good things we have.

God blesses us with food, clothing and a place to live. He also has blessed us with His gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus. Because Jesus was willing to die for us, we can have eternal life. Those are wonderful blessings!

Our Bible Reading today reminds us that because we have blessings from God, we should have certain things in our lives. What are those things? Verses 5-7 tell us that we should have faith, goodness, knowledge, self-control, patience, devotion to God and kindness. “If all these things are in you and growing, you will never fail to be useful to God” (verse 8a).

When you are sad or worried, think about all the blessings God has given you. And don’t forget to thank Him for blessing you. — LB

“Jesus chose us by his glory and goodness, through which he also gave us the very great and rich gifts that he promised us.” 2 Peter 1:3b-4a

PRAYER: God, help me remember all You have done for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
