Adam and Eve did. Surrounded by all they needed, they set their eyes on the one thing they couldn’t have.
The followers of Moses did. They could’ve focused on the miracles, but instead they focused on their problems.
What are you looking at? The one fruit you can’t eat? Or the million you can? The manna or the misery?
The apostle Paul reminds us:
Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, lovely, of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8 NIV).
Even the garden of Eden looks gray to some. But it needn’t to you. Jesus who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6)! Give every day a chance!
