20 Bible Verses About Appreciating Life
Today we will be dealing with 20 Bible verses about appreciating life. I have seen people complain bitterly about how unfair life is treating them. This feeling is normal. Especially when you see other people doing well and all efforts to get yourself on the track to success seem abortive. It is normal for you to think you have been cheated by life.
However, you may also wish to know that things are a lot better for you than for some people. Your present life, regardless of how low is another man’s prayer point. There is someone out there who just wishes they could have the things that you have at the moment.
There are several people of your age group who are dead already. You can complain about life only because you are still alive. Those that are dead have no complaints. This is why you must learn to appreciate life. Instead of complaining all the time and turning all your prayer points into requests, why not take time to give thanks to God.
Maybe it is not your time yet, but as long as you have breathed hope is not lost yet. The scripture said in the book of Isaiah 60:22 The smallest family will become a thousand people, and the tiniest group will become a mighty nation. At the right time, I, the LORD, will make it happen. As long as you are alive your time will come.
When it is your time, you would not need to struggle for it because the Lord will make it happen. So you should stop complaining and start appreciating life because things are a lot better for you than others.
We have compiled a list of 20 Bible verses about appreciating life.
