Don't take things for granted

Sometimes we don't realise how good things are until they are taken away from us. This is exactly what happened to the people of Judah - they complained about many things and chose to turn their backs on God, but then when the real heartache arrived, it suddenly dawned on them how precious things were.

"In the days of her affliction and wandering
    Jerusalem remembers all the treasures
    that were hers in days of old." - Lamentations 1:7

I think the lesson in this scripture is obvious for us - don't taken things for granted. One day they may not be there at all. 

Have a blessed week.

Living in Grace

Hello Pastor Delme Linscott. I am so glad to come across your profile on the blogger and the blog post. I am also glad to stop by your blog post and was reminded of the fact "not to take things for granted". I am also a Pastor from Mumbai, India and love to get connected with the people of God around the world to be encouraged, strengthen and praying for one another.

I have been in the Pastoral ministry for last 36 yrs in this great city of Mumbai a city with a great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We also encourage young and the adults from the west to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. We would love to have you come to Mumbai to strengthen the body of Christ.Also we would love to have young people from your church to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time.
