"Every good and perfect gift is from above..." Yet we are so prone to think that we are responsible for our successes, and look to point the finger of blame when things don't go our way. Through his example of thankfulness, the Apostle Paul directs our attention to the bountiful blessings that are ours in Christ which should cause us to always give thanks to God, and therefore to be humble.
Too often our hearts are distracted from the glorious preoccupation of worshipping the Lord. The allurements of the world, the cares of life, and the pain of loss all have the tendency to pull us down into a spiral of despair and discontent. Psalm 103 calls us to speak to ourselves and call ourselves to remembrance of who God is and what He has done for us that we might be compelled to lift our eyes to the One who is worthy of all our praise.
