How often do we sit around waiting for God to pay us? How many times have you heard someone speak of all of the good they have done and not been rewarded for, as though God owes them something for doing the right thing? Blessings are not a form of payment for good deeds. Finding favor with God is a continuous endeavor encompassing faith, character, sincerity and good will. Our lives are rich with blessings from the moment we are born. Learn to appreciate the ones you have already received and you will be better able to recognize the ones you haven’t.
