Today I'm thankful...
-- That all my basic needs are met in abundance. Yesterday I mentioned hunger. But I have shelter, water, clothing, etc.
-- That I am not greedy, pretentious or materialistic (at least I don't think I am). I want to keep a proper perspective on how fortunate I am and fight for the rights of those less fortunate than me. I do want to make Micah 6:8 my life verse:
But he's already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don't take yourself too seriously— take God seriously.
(Micah 6:8 -- The Message)
