Thankful

Filed under: Uncategorized — Neil @ 5:13 pm

Sunday I’m teaching 1 of our senior Sunday School classes.  The topic: Being Thankful (& understanding that being blessed = blessing others).

We’ll be primarily looking at Genesis 1:27-31 & Genesis 2:8-15.  As I’ve read & studied those passages I kept thinking about this quote by Seth Godin that hangs above my computer in my office:

Do you deserve the luck you’ve been handed? The place you were born, the education you were given, the job you’ve got? Do you deserve your tribe, your customer base, your brand?

Not at all. “Deserve” is such a loaded word. Most of us don’t deserve the great opportunities we have, or the lucky breaks that got us here.

The question shouldn’t be, “do you deserve it.” I think it should be, “what are you going to do with it now that you’ve got it?”
