I think of the baby books parents keep in which to record their children’s first words, first steps, and growth. So, too, the Lord keeps such books recording the words, walk, and growth of His children. The question is, how big is yours? I suggest the Lord needs many volumes to contain the thanksgiving of some of His kids. For others, a single pamphlet will do.
(1) Often we are ungrateful to our parents
As Shakespeare’s King Lear said in the day of his own tragedy:
How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is
To have a thankless child!
(2) Often we are ungrateful to one another
(3) Often we are ungrateful to God
God gave us his only Son and often we never give to him even a word of thanks.
