I want to challenge you to read from the Proverbs every day. There is much wisdom that can be gleaned from this book. This morning I read from verse one. Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.
It is so easy to be ungrateful for what we have. We have the dry morsels. This is the simple thought that hit me this morning. God gave me my “dry morsels.” So when I am ungrateful for these “dry morsels” I am ungrateful for what God has given me. What God gives me is enough to sustain me. What God gives me is enough to give to the work of the Lord. What God gives me is what God deems necessary for my life.
There are so many people that have less “dry morsels” than I have, but they are doing more to serve God than I do. This tells me that the devil uses discontentment as a diversionary tool. He wants to prevent me from serving God.
God gives me every day what I need to sustain me. He sustains me so that I may serve Him. Therefore, I must refocus my efforts away from being ungrateful for the “dry morsels” to seeing them as a gift from God given that I may serve Him.
Let us be grateful for what we have and use what we have to serve Him.
