Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. — Matthew 18:4
Adapted from the resource The Power of Being Thankful Devotional – by Joyce Meyer
One thing we all know about children is that they enjoy life. A child can literally enjoy anything. A child can turn work into a game so he is able to enjoy it.
I recall asking my son to sweep the patio when he was about 11 or 12 years old. I looked outside and saw him dancing with the broom to the music playing on the headset he was wearing. I thought, Amazing! He has turned sweeping into a game. If he has to do it, he is going to enjoy it.
We should all have that attitude. We may not choose to dance with a broom, but we should choose an attitude of thanksgiving in everything we do and always enjoy all aspects of life.
Prayer Starter: When I am in a situation that doesn’t seem like a lot of fun naturally, help me, Father, to make the most of it. I thank You that I can enjoy every part of my life, knowing that the joy of the Lord is my strength. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
