Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional October 3, 2017
Topic: Notice the Little Things
Key Verse: What time I am afraid, I will have confidence in and put my trust and reliance in You. – Psalm 56:3
MESSAGE: One day as I was going into an office building, a man standing nearby opened the door for me. I thanked him and smiled.
“You’re the fifth person I’ve held the door for,” he said, “and you’re the first one to smile and the second to thank me.”
I thanked him a second time, with a smile on my face. Afterward, I thought how much we take others for granted, even in simple things, such as opening a door for a stranger.
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional Messages: Don’t Bow Your Knee to Fear
We often commend people when they do big things for us, but how often do we appreciate the little things?
When someone does something nice for you and you thank them, it builds them up and encourages them. It means a lot to them, just like it did to that man at the office building.
Did your bus arrive on time today? If so, did you thank the driver? The last time you ate at a restaurant, did you thank the waiter for filling your coffee cup a second time without being asked? This is the point I want to make: Develop an attitude of gratitude toward the people in your life.
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional Messages: God’s Perfect Plan
PRAYER: Lord, keep me aware so that I will notice the little, helpful things people do for me. I don’t want to be ungrateful. Instead, I want to thank them and build them up. Amen!
