Did it ever occur to you, that as adults, we are decidedly less lovable to God? We no longer have the appeal of innocence, and are now more set in our ways, more decided, less sympathetic. So why should God, in whose image we are modeled, pay any attention to us anymore?
Yet we are decidedly among his favorites. His Son, reflecting his father’s predilections, offered his life to replace the bullocks, lambs, and turtledoves that were used as sacrifices before Him. (God has human attributes, too.)
So shouldn’t we say thank you? What have we done in gratitude? There are millions of good deeds done every day in gratitude to Him. Is yours one of them?
