  • COLUMN: Don't forget God's benefits

     In Psalm 103:2 we are admonished to “forget none of His benefits.” 

    Have you counted your benefits from the Lord lately? We sometimes forget how God has graciously blessed us. A tag on the front of a car parked at the Golden Corral last week said it all – “BLESSED.” One word sums it up for us.

    Someone said, “It is time to wake up, look up, pray up, and praise up.”
