There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.
When asked to define “great,” he said, “I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream in disbelief, cry in despair, howl in pain, and vent their anger in ways they’ve never dreamed of!”
He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.
“I don’t make jokes, “Will Rogers once said truthfully. “I just watch the government and report the facts.”
Thought for the day
“Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty–he is the King of glory” (Psalm 24:8, 10 NIV).
Gratitude is one gauge that measures our dependence on God. The more dependent we are, the more grateful we become.
