When we are on the receiving end, we all agree that ingratitude is a terrible crime. To try to do something that costs you time and effort and sometimes money and to be met with a “so what” attitude really provokes our anger. But are we guilty of the crime we reprobate? Today’s devotional may help here. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Psalm 107:1 English Standard Version (ESV)
Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So
107 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
“Do not be like the hog, that eats the acorns under the oak, but never lifts up its head to bless the tree that gives it its food. It is better, as John Bunyan tells us, to imitate the little chicken that never sips a drop of water without lifting its head as if to thank God for every drop it drinks.”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1897), p. 414]
