Weekly Devotional Thoughts
My wife and I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to some very poor countries. During these trips, we experienced living conditions that were less than desirable. Items we take for granted such as a working sewage system, safe drinking water, and steady supply of electricity or well-stocked grocery stores are not always available. While the general population does not have access to the basic amenities we take for granted, they are much happier and more content with their lives than we are. It is easy to see they have a joy that their surroundings cannot steal.
How can people who live without the amenities we have, enjoy life more than we do? The answer lies within their hearts; they have hearts that are full of gratitude for what God has given them and not envy for what they are lacking. They understand what Paul meant when he wrote in 1 Corinthians 4:8 “Isn’t everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God? So what’s the point of all this comparing and competing? You already have all you need”.
Envy may be the number one killer of happiness. When we look at others with envy, we always ask the “why” question. Why not me? Why them? Why can’t I? Invariably, envy drives us to compare our lives to others and with hearts full of envy, the comparison is never a favorable one.
Envy leaves no room for appreciation or gratitude. We worry about a thief breaking into our homes and stealing our possessions yet we are ok with envy stealing our joy of living.
Gratitude is a virtue we must work at cultivating. It does not come naturally for most of us. Every time you catch yourself wishing for something other than what you currently have, stop and give God thanks for the things and the people you do have in your life.
Who knows, with enough practice maybe we will catch up to the third world countries.
A Message of Welcome From All Saints Lutheran Church
Hi! My name is Pastor Brian George and I want to extend a warm invitation to you to come join us here at All Saints Lutheran Church. Our Mission is to know, Serve, and Promote Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, education and outreach. Here at All Saints Church we see ourselves as the center of spiritual growth where God is praised and his loving message is proclaimed through worship and music that is energizing, inspiring and uplifting. Worship and music inspires the worship participant to be blessed so that they become a blessing to others. At All Saints a warm and loving welcome is extended to all and everyone belongs. Our congregation is growing larger and smaller at the same time; meaning you can always find your place here in one of our smaller groupings. At All Saints we grow spiritually through daily devotions by being a part of a small group and by giving and sharing our blessings with others. At All Saints we discover our God-given gifts and are inspired to use them. Here at All Saints we are known on the community grapevine for being a congregation that reaches inward in ministry and reaches outward in mission. We are “The Church With Open Arms!"
