Adding One More Thing
Adding one more what? When we do these posts on Two Chums, they are done in advance and scheduled to be published each morning at 3 am Pacific time. So when yesterday’s post encouraging us all to Be Kind and Be Thankful was written, we could never have imagined what was about to unfold in Las Vegas hours later. But the timing of that post was no accident. We couldn’t have known what was about to happen, but God knew.
So today we add one more thing to yesterday’s list….Be Prayerful. When we ask God for blessing and protection for our family, friends, our country, and indeed our world, it is much harder to be ungrateful and cruel towards others. When we pray for others and ourselves, we acknowledge that we are not in control, we are but stewards to whom this world has been entrusted. What very different lives we would lead, if being kind, being grateful, and being prayerful were our priorities. What a different world it would be for us all.
After yesterday’s horrors we needn’t just hope or wish things in this world could be different, we can indeed begin to change them. That change begins with acknowledging the God who created us all. It begins with remembering His instruction that we are to love one another, and to treat others as we would have them treat us.
So today we will remind you and ourselves yet again, Be Kind, Be Thankful and we adding one more….Be Prayerful.
