"The question "What have I done to deserve this?" is one we usually ask of our troubles, not our successes--those, we assume we deserve" (Myers, p. 586).
While reading this, I immediately thought...wow! We do this with God! When something bad happens to us, or we don't like something about ourselves, we ask God "what did we do to deserve this"? But too often we overlook all the blessings God has given us! We don't ask "what did I do to deserve this food, or home, or eyes, or taste, or socks, family...etc..." The list could go on and on! We are so eager to accept good things from God, yet grumble when things don't go our way. Hmmmm...I am totally in this boat! Lord forgive me for not being grateful for your grace and simple blessings each day! I believe that gratitude is one way we can learn to LOVE God.
