The story is told of a mother and her four-year-old daughter who were strolling through an open-air market. As the little girl stared at a large pile of oranges, a generous vendor took one from the table and gave it to her. "What do you say to the nice man?" the mother asked her daughter. The little girl looked at the orange, and then thrust it toward the man and said, "Peel it!"

Many of us treat God the way this little girl treated the kind vendor. But what might be excusable for a four-year-old, is just plain old rude and ungrateful from an older child or adult.

When the Lord bestows His blessings upon you, show Him your gratitude by having a thankful attitude.
