Focus on Gratitude

The majority of this past week I was in Marietta Georgia at the contractor supported weapons system conference. This conference is the forum for discussing the various aspects involved in prime contractor (Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop, etc) support of Air Force systems (C-17, F-22, RQ-4, etc).

My time in Scripture this week brought the following thoughts:
  • The Lord tests his people to see if they will follow his instructions (Exodus 16)
  • Many are invited but few are chosen (Matthew 22:14)
  • Delegation was taught to Moses by his father in law, Jethro (Exodus 18)
  • The greatest command given is to love the Lord with all (Matthew 22)
  • Man ruins what God puts in place (Exodus 18 and Matthew 23)
  • Be prepared because you don’t know when Jesus is coming back (Matthew 25)
Additional thoughts from lesson 3 of Og Mandino’s University of Success book:
  • Count your blessings, not your troubles
  • Consider the less fortunate in order to regain perspective
  • Take time to think about all you have, be grateful, and thank God for it
  • Make a personal list of all you have to be grateful for
That’s it for this week, short and sweet!

My challenge to you is to focus on being grateful for all you have. What are you especially grateful for?
