Like Stars in the Universe

Phil 2: 14 – 15 Do everything without complaining or arguing,  so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.
Shine Like Stars in the Universe…..
Does it make a difference when we have a grateful heart?,

a positive attitude?
When we don’t complain?
GOD SAYS IT DOES.
He says that it’s what makes us stand out in a crooked and depraved generation.

Does that mean in everything?
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.  1 Thessalonians 5:18

As this Thanksgiving season draws near, let us remember that it does matter how we view the circumstances of our life, and how we respond to those circumstances.  It does matter how we carry out our responsibilities, and how we serve others.    Cleaning toilets, washing clothes, running errands, cooking food, all the mundane little duties of our jobs at work and at home.  Yes, in ALL things.

You may not realize who observes you as you go about your daily business, or who is impacted by your example.  But even if no one on Earth applauds your efforts or even seems to care…. what you do is noticed, and more importantly the attitude and gratitude with which you do it is noticed by your Heavenly Father.   
Do we want him to notice you?……then be thankful, don’t complain, and you will SHINE in His eyes….. like the stars in the universe!!!!!
PRAYER for you this Thanksgiving season:  
May you have a grateful heart, and a thankful spirit.  May you shine bright in a dark world.
