When you sit to dine with a ruler, note well what is before you,
and put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.
Do not crave his delicacies, for that food is deceptive. Proverbs 23:1-3
Do you take God for granted? Do you forget that He is the Creator of the Universe? Do you realize that He has the power to cast each of us into the darkest of pits?
Why do I write such things? Well, I think too often we take Him for granted. Yes, He will always be there in good times and bad, but I know I get careless in my faith.
I forget the sacrifice that Christ paid for us. I forget that God longs to fellowship with his Creation: us! I forget that I am finite and He is infinite. I look out at the Autumn leaves and forget that He created each to be a delight for His creation. I forget that without a faith in God I’d be hurting.
May we never stop examining the Wonders of God.
