Lebron James donated $41 million to finance 1,100 worthy kids to go to college. He said he did it because he was so grateful for his present blessings despite growing up in a single-parent home in Akron, OH. Of course, we applaud Lebron for his generosity; but it reminds us that we should respond fittingly to God for all His amazing blessings. Here is how the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4 says we should respond: “I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all.” In response to God’s amazing salvation and His daily blessings, the Apostle Paul urges us to show our gratitude to God. We do this by always living to please Him, avoiding division based on class, race, ethnicity, and frivolous doctrines.
