Friends, I am ashamed to say I am writing this at my niece’s graduation. Don’t worry, the speaker has spoken and she has already walked. But I think this post is better late than never.
The speaker said three things that I will remember, so I thought you might like them too. First, remember who created you and thank Him often. God knew your place and time in his story. Thank him daily or hourly or more.
Second, remember who shaped you and thank them often. Your parents, your teachers and family. People who sacrificed for you. Thank them. Remember them.
And third, remember who you were made to be. Compassionate, joyful in the Lord, doing everything to the glory of God.
As I sit here among my family and strangers, I wonder how many of us need to hear this. Have we gotten off track? Forgotten who we are? Forgotten who to thank? Never fear. We serve an all-powerful, all knowing and loving God who says…better late than never.
