You surely speak truth, Julie! For someone who is given a gift, but that gift is not received with appreciation or thanksgiving is to miss the blessing. It goes both ways, though, if the gift is given out of some sort of perceived obligation instead of out of the sheer joy of love and giving - then that, too, is to miss the blessing. With Christ we absolutely know that His gift of salvation is born of His eternal love for us and His utter joy in giving to us that which makes us whole. Prayers for all to see His gift for what it is - LIFE; for any day without Him is just another day of Death. Well that was a long-winded way of saying you hit the nail on the head!
