What are my “If-Onlys”?
What gifts am I convinced I can’t live without?
It’s almost always something good that I elevate over something great.
My Creator is good. He is good, was good, and will be good. His gifts are good. But in loving the gifts He has given, I can end up loving them more than the Creator himself. For me, it’s really easy to slip into that mindset of loving the gifts more than the Giver. My health, wealth, or relationships faltering can quickly send me scrambling. Luckily, I also slip back out of that thinking pretty easily.
I guess the struggle is in being proactive. Finding time daily to be thankful in the praise of my very good Father. To take being worshipful from being a mindset to become a lifestyle.
