“Don’t be interested only in your own life, but be interested in what concerns others too.” Phil 2:4
a mother of young children I found it so frustrating and hurtful when
my children did not care or appreciate each other. It seemed as if they could only
focus on what the other siblings had that they didn't have. We are so
much like our children in that we too focus on the blessings of others
instead of the blessings God has given to us.
It's human nature to be
blinded by the great gifts we receive each day when we see someone else
receiving something more. As parents we try to bless each child but our
children only see what they have not received. It's a terrible character
flaw within all of us when we think only of ourselves. We need to be
thankful for our blessings but also for the blessings of others.
