My intention was to keep this series light-hearted. I just intended to sit at the computer for a few minutes each evening and jot down a quick post telling about a thankful thought I had. It wasn’t intended to be a list of priorities, or even a particularly serious series. But oddly, with each passing day it gets harder to be flippant about gratitude. I guess thankfulness is a heavy thing. God is so good to us that it’s hard to take His gifts lightly.
I didn’t know what my thankful thought was going to be when I sat down just a few minutes ago, but having said that it’s hard to take God’s gifts lightly brings only one thought to mind: I am thankful for salvation. Why did God choose me, a sinner? Why did Christ sacrifice Himself for us? How can the creature be valued above the Creator? Why am I so foolish as to sin every day when I owe Him so great a debt?
My eternal soul is a gift, unearned and undeserved. God is good.
