The Folly of Ingratitude

All of you have seen the great works of God. I have no doubt about this at all. You just have to open your eyes and there are His great works.

Can you see it? Can you see Him? 

But some of you have experienced the extraordinary works of God. His remarkable dealings. Do you remember? Is that remembrance enough to see you through your present trouble? Does that remembrance bring you to your knees to confess ingratitude? Does the reality of God’s kindness lead you to repentance?

If not, it is because you have a stiff neck. You refuse to look up or from side to side to see God’s blessing. Your gaze is fixed forward and and down, like an exhausted marathoner who can only see one foot ahead of him. 

Lift up your eyes. Remember where you have come from. See God’s goodness in His mercy, His kindness, the love of His people. Show gratitude, be humble and cast yourself on the grace of Jesus.
