Amy's sister, Lilly, left two bags full of stuff for children to be picked up by an American woman from another orphanage in Arusha. The lady came last night and did not say thank you but demanded to know where the third bag was. I believe it was the apostle Paul who wrote that we should be content with what we have. It is better to graciously and thankfully accept whatever gift is offered without demanding more. Demanding more is a very good way to never receive anything again. Is that what we do with God? Demand more when we should be offering prayers of thanksgiving? Most of us have many more blessings than we recognize. Try to see how God has blessed you and thank Him rather than looking for what is missing and demanding more. Just a thought.
