“Triple T”

You know how so many of the Old Testament books
of the Bible seem to be filled with gloom & doom?
But there’s actually SO much more.

Here’s a quick example:

God was pointing out how so many of His people
had stopped tithing,
stopped obeying,
stopped caring about God altogether.

Then He says this…

Malachi 3:16 (another great “3:16” verse)
“Then those who feared the LORD spoke with each other,
and the LORD listened to what they said.
In his presence, a scroll of remembrance was written
to record the names of those who feared him
and always thought about the honor of his name.”

Did you notice that?

1. God was listening to the conversations between
people who served Him.
He was LISTENING! And they weren’t even praying!

2. They purposely kept a record of the people who
obeyed God and always THOUGHT about honoring
His name.

So I need to remember…

A. God is listening!
Stop complaining!

B. Think thoughts that honor Him!
He makes note of it.

C. Thinking about God will quickly make me thankful.

So… this little verse tucked away in the last book
of the Old Testament tells me to
THINK THANKFUL THOUGHTS!

Those are three “T’s” that I need to write on some sticky
notes and post them everywhere in my face,
and phone,
and mirror
and heart!

THINK THANKFUL THOUGHTS!
