Today, the Lord taught me a lesson I hope I NEVER forget.
I went to the doctor this morning to figure out what was wrong with my shoulder. I was sitting in his office when they called me to sign in. I went to the window and paid my $40 co-pay. I was grumbling about it but when I went back to sit down I saw a vision of Frieda in Sunday school class saying "Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you". I knew immediately I was caught in the sin of un-thankfulness and being un-grateful. I recognized the sin and as I sat down, I spent the better part of the next 10 or 15 minutes apologizing to the Lord for being un-grateful.
I told the Lord I don’t want to exhibit these sinful patterns in my life. I thought about what I have and how fortunate I am to have a good job with good insurance the $40 bucks for the co-pay. The more I thought about what I have, the more apologetic I became to the Lord.
I also thank God for Frieda and her faithfulness to teach our Sunday School class. She and the Lord chose a book that is stimulating in discussion and provides me with much thought and discussion with the Lord.
