The gift of life

You will eat and be satisfied, and you will live in safety. ~ Leviticus 26:5b (CEV)

Jesus said: I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest. ~ John 10:10b (CEV)

Through Jesus we have been given incredibly rich and full lives.
Thank you so much, Jesus. You have given us incredibly rich and abundant lives. I for one don't always live the life I've been given. But that is no reflection on the gift. It's just that I enjoy trying to control my own life. I want to be seen as a self-made person. I know, though, that my attitude is getting in the way of living the life you've given to me so I'm asking that you'd also fix my attitude. I want to enjoy the gift of life as you have given it. Amen.
