Be thankful for people

One of the things Jesus does for us is to place the right people in our lives. We need to be thankful for those people because we will get nowhere without them.

Be thankful for the people who love, support, celebrate, and encourage you.

Be thankful for the people who invest their time and resources in you.

Be thankful for the people who lead you.

Be thankful for the people who offer you their perspectives.

Be thankful for the people who challenge you.

Be thankful for the people who force you to bury your offense button in order to maintain your character.

Be thankful for the people who make you consider that maybe you are wrong.

Be thankful for the people who flat-out do not like you.

Be thankful for the people you get to love, support, celebrate, and encourage.

Be thankful for the people you get to sow your time and resources into.

Be thankful for the people you get to lead.

Be thankful for the people who value your perspective.

Be thankful for the people who listen to your challenge, and don’t take offense.

Be thankful for the people who choose to like you even with all of your flaws.

Be thankful for all of these people. These people all play a role in you becoming a better, more complete person. More importantly they all play a role in you becoming a more Christ like person. I would even say this, you may reach the end of your life just fine without people, but you will never become who you are supposed to be before you get there.

God is for you, and I am for you!
