Do you take everything for granted?
I went to the store one morning this week to pick up some eggs and bread. When I was walking through the store I came upon a table that said: “Inspirational BARGAIN Books”. On this table they had an assortment of books. The books were Bibles, commentaries about the Bible, and some self-help books for moms. It made me think about a world where Bibles were not allowed, much less sold at the local grocery store. Then I started thinking about the things I take for granted. On the bread aisle, I had a choice of about 80 different brands of bread. I could even pick from about 20 different brands of eggs.
Did you know that hunger kills more people than AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis combined? (http://www.wfp.org/hunger/stats) Do you take the books you read, the food you eat, and the life you have for granted?
In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. Matthew 13:14-16(NIV)
