God never intended for us to compare our lives or our stuff with others. Instead, He commanded us to look to Him - the giver of life, hope, peace, love, security. Understanding His gifts causes our hearts to well up with gratitude. He gives so much; we deserve so little. Only in acknowledging the Giver, appreciating His unwarranted, incomparable, and unmerited gifts, will our hearts be safe from bitterness and depression.
