Have you ever drove by a multi million-dollar home and thought: "Why can't I have that kind of wealth?" What about becoming a bit jealous at times while viewing rich and famous people on television? The thoughts come to mind, "here I am hoping to have enough money to make ends meet, yet they have soooo much." While I am dreaming about a rich life, little do I realize what misery many of these people experience. They maybe worried to death for fear of losing their fortune while constantly protecting themselves from those who would rob them blind. All the while, they dedicate their lives to obtaining more, yet never becoming satisfied.
The wonderful thing as a Christian, I have so much more to be thankful for. At one time, I was living in the kingdom of darkness. But now, God has brought me into the kingdom of light. I have an inheritance worth more money than all the wealth in the world could buy. This Thanksgiving I will remember and be thankful for all the wonderful blessings He has bestowed upon me while laying to rest any covetousness I may have over the things which I do not have.
"giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,"
(Colossians 1:12-13 NKJV)
