Thanksgiving is approaching fast. Especially at this time of year, we pause to think about our lives. We consider all that we have to be thankful for. It’s a good time to examine our lives and consider the choices we make that bring blessings and also those that are harmful and some even sinful.
Let’s use an illustration to examine our lives. Think of a water glass as representing your life. The “water” that fills the “glass” is that which fills your life. Now think about the “water.” Is it clean, fresh water? Or is it muddy water? We all choose the kind of “water” that fills our “glass.”
