You don’t have to look very far to find a homeless person—some are in that condition because they filled their lives with alcohol, drugs, and rebellion. But on the same token, there are those who were forced into homelessness though changes that they couldn’t control. Because of the uncertainty of life, we have to admit becoming homeless can happen to anyone. We all must learn to be thankful to have any kind of home, be it ghetto or suburbs (Ephesians 5:20).
I realize there could be problems with the living conditions of homes and neighborhoods. But such is life, and we must find a way to overcome those hardships. Don’t you know that Jesus had no regular place to call home? (Luke 9:57-58). Yet, He was the perfect example of what it meant to be thankful (John 17:1-26). Since tomorrow isn’t promised, we need to reflect on how important the current day is and be thankful for the roof over our heads (Colossians 3:15; Psalm 136:26; Hebrews 13:15).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
