What do you take for granted? A recent event has me contemplating that very thing. When there is something in your life that you only realize how important it is when it is missing, you have taken its’ value for granted. Whether it is the modern conveniences of life (such as: lights, running water, computers or your cell phones) or a relationship with a person, the importance is not always known until something happens to them. The same thing is true with how we treat our relationship with God. Although we should not take it for granted who He is and what He does for us, sometimes we only realize how much we need Him in times of trial and trouble. Make it a priority to work on the relationship with God, daily, and it will help us improve our appreciation of all of the other things that He has blessed us with.
