God, you did everything you promised, and I’m thanking you with all my heart. Psalm 56:12 (TM)
Thank you. They are simple, short words that we often forget to utter. This afternoon I will stand in front of a group of business people who spend much of their day on the phone with the very folks who make their pay checks possible. I will remind them to say "thank you" because no matter how well our mothers and fathers taught us – no matter how well we know it – we too often forget those simple, short words. Why does grace seem to always give way to a sense of entitlement.
Jesus has forgiven my countless, ugly sins.
Jesus has overlooked my stupidity.
Jesus has answered my prayers.
Jesus has blessed me.
Jesus died for me.
