God’s Blessings

My friend took Mary to a food buffet. Mary looked at all the different kinds of food, but she only put a few things on her plate. My friend asked Mary why she didn’t take more food. Mary said that she didn’t want my friend to have to pay a lot of money for the food. Mary did not realize that at a buffet she could eat all the food she wanted for one price.
Sometimes we are like Mary. God offers us so many blessings in life, but we are not willing to take them. Our Bible Reading today lists many blessings that God offers to His children. “If we are God’s children, we will get the blessings God has for his people” (verse 17a). Some of these blessings are being called God’s children, receiving help from the Holy Spirit, and not being separated from God.
Jesus died on the cross so that we can receive God’s wonderful blessings. Accept God’s blessings for you and live for Him today.
