Jesus continually challenged His listeners to be like a child. When a follower of Jesus accepts His invitation to get little, then it’s easier to see everything as a gift from God.

Children see life simply. Everything is gift. Everything is given. Do I see everything that I have as a gift from God? Is grateful a quality of my lifestyle?

O Holy Spirit, I thank You for Your presence in my life. I know that all that I have comes from God. May others experience me as a thankful recipient of God’s grace.
