Thankful Thursday ~ Simplicity
For years the research has shown the most popular flavor of ice cream is plain old vanilla. I remember shopping with my dad several years ago and stopping for an ice cream cone with him at Baskin Robbins. He ordered vanilla and they were out! We had a good laugh. Oh, the simple things in life! I, on the other hand, had so many choices of ice cream I wanted to try, I didn’t know what I wanted.
Today, I’m thinking of the simple things in life and thanking God for them. I’m thankful for the foundational truth of the gospel. Jesus said:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
It’s simple, but it’s profound. There’s a lot of fancy, elaborate religions out there, but Jesus made it so simple. He invites us into a relationship with Him and promises us life everlasting. He offers abundant life to me today and also tomorrow and forever. For me, this truth never gets old. I’m thankful for my relationship with Him where every need is met.
