After we've been on a subject for a while, we need to turn to something new! It is a fact that one of life's secret is to earn ones bread, partake of it and give God thanks. And it sounds so simple. But the fact of the matter is that not everyone earn his own bread, partakes of it or gives God thanks. Three things. Some of us are in support system and unemployed, or under-employed and or never to be employed or have never been employed!
But how is that we we partake of our own bread and partake of it? The bible tells that we should not take anybody's bread without paying for it! But some of us have no money or nothing to give for our bread! Now that's a dilema! What shall we do? No bread and or no money! The fact of the matter is that God is the giver of all things! And if we cannot do anything else, from whatever source we should give God thanks!
And we are turning into fall and Thanksgiving Day and it's a day where some like to give thanks. And how good that is! If we didn't have a bumper harvest this year, a mighty act of thanks will atone for anything we failed to do this year. And that what grace is all about! Giving thanks! We haven't earned the bread that comes from heaven and much less the right to be cleansed by the shed blood.
But it is intelligent to give thanks that we understand that we could never earn Christ in the mighty works of a thousand life-times. To earn what we could never earn and to partake of what is really a privilege! God is more interested in gratefulness than in vain boasting on what we've done here or there. And we give thanks to God for even the trivial matters and for our daily bread, but once we understand how close we came to missing out, we can't but say hallelujah! Praise God and get ready to say thanks to all-mighty God! Amen.
