Word of the Day:Focus on God’s blessings
A certain man was giving a presentation at a seminar where he took a large piece of paper and made a black dot in the center of it. He then held it up for his audience and asked them what they saw. A man stood and said he saw a black mark and everyone around agreed with him. The speaker asked if they saw any other thing but the whole hall was silent.
He then told them how surprised he was because they had completely overlooked the most important thing of all—the sheet of paper. We are often distracted by small, dot-like disappointments, and we are prone to forget the innumerable blessings we receive from the Lord.
Therefore, rather than concentrating on the trials of life we should fix our attention on its blessings. As we travel down life’s pathway, may we keep our eyes upon the doughnut and not on the hole. Today, let’s spend our time counting our blessings rather than airing our complaints.
Psalms 103:2 “Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”
