Our society likes focusing our attention on the “haves” and the “have-nots.” If we are not careful, we can become discontent because we focus on things that we do not have. Or we can actually mistake material blessings for something that is very minor compared to all you have in Christ. Let’s get our attention on what we have! The lasting blessings that all Christians possess. Believer, you are blessed!
It was Paul’s prayer that the believers in Ephesus knew a little bit about the great blessings they have in Christ. Please take a few minutes to consider a few of these spiritual blessings you have in Christ. These are much more grand than any of the things our world prizes as the “finer life” of the “haves.”
