All the Many Gifts we are Given

Dawn in Kaimuki

Good Morning, God!

Just as you send Your Life Giving Rain on the Just and the Unjust alike — so too, do The Heavens declare Your Glory all over the world. Or more specifically, as we observed the other day, Your Dawn is just as beautiful in Kaimuki, as it is in Hawaii Kai.

All of us have been given the Sky. The rich don’t get a “better version.” It’s the same for TIME. We all get 24 hours a day. The poor have no less and the rich have no more. It seems to be that way with Your Gifts.  Exodus 16:17-18 talks about gathering the manna You sent down from Heaven.  So the people of Israel did as they were told. Some gathered a lot, some only a little. But when they measured it out, everyone had just enough. Those who gathered a lot had nothing left over, and those who gathered only a little had enough. Each family had just what it needed.

That is so lovely, God! You care for us. Ah yes, and on the SIXTH day the people were told to gather double for there would be no manna on the SEVENTH day. Even then, before the Ten Commandments were given, the Seventh Day was special. It too, is a GIFT from You — as is the Gift of our Life. Thank YOU!

So, please, God, this morning help me NOTICE all the many Gifts that we humans have been given. Help me to TRUST YOU and PRAY FOR people — to BLESS BLESS and not to curse — especially in traffic.
