This month we had our meeting at a restaurant. Needless to say, it was very loud, and we couldn't visit with everyone, since we were stuck around a table and not in a house. It was nice not to have to cook or clean up though!
Below is the lesson we done. Everyone was provided with a tea cup and when we got to the part about being thankful for everyday things, we added a piece of candy to our cups until they were over flowing with thankfulness!
How Full Is Your Cup?
Sitting in front of you is a cup. Just a simple plain Jane, white cup sitting there. There’s nothing inside it to make it any different from your neighbor’s cup. Our lives are much like these cups. Empty until something is put inside! The best things that can be put into our “cups” are Godly things. The more Godly things that we allow into our cups, the less room we have for “worldly” things. Thanksgiving is also this month and I think we have a lot to be thankful for, and we don’t even realize it. We go about our daily lives and don’t see the good that God has blessed us with. So we are going to fill our “cups” up with things that we take for granted.
“O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalms 107:1
• Did you wake up this morning?
• A Home?
• Kids? How many?
If God has blessed us with all of this why do we run from Him? Without Him we would have nothing! So this month we need to be Thankful for the simple things in life. Try not to complain about each and everything that goes wrong. Try thinking of one thing each day that you can be thankful for. Then during the day, when things start to get rough, pray and thank God for that thing! Do it each day! The more that we praise God the less that we will be grumbling which praises Satan.
