Do bee’s take pleasure in their own honey? can’t say that I’ve seen a bee smacking its lips over its gooey end-product. in the same way are we too often too busy to appreciate? by “too often” I mean often enough that you can’t enjoy what God has ever so carefully (and purposefully) placed in your life? busyness is the end result of many equations: ambition, season of life, responsibility to just name a few. in our times of “too busy,” stepping back and taking time to inventory what He has already given us verses wanting or doing more (for whatever the reason) is important. I don’t think He would give us gifts in this life if He didn’t want us to enjoy them. why give it then? certainly not to ignore them.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17 NIV)
