Have you ever heard; don’t bite the hand that feeds you?
We get mad at those who are helping us, or who has helped us in the past, mostly because we can’t have our way in our asking.
When we ask for help from someone, and go back for help again, most have expectations that they are to help us again, and again. But when they don’t help us that one time, oh . . . it’s on! At-ti-tude! Nothing good to say about the person who helped us. Why? Are they wrong because they didn’t help — this time? And, because we didn’t get what we wanted? Are you now, biting the hand that fed you?
We have to understand that others are not obligated to us. And definitely not obligated to help us every time we ask. They have a choice.
With God, we always have our hand stuck out, asking for this and that. We expect him to give us what we ask for every time we ask. But when God ask from us, we either are hesitant in doing what he ask, or don’t want to do it. But most often, we what something for nothing. And when we don’t get it, we bite the hand that fed us, catch an at-ti-tude, and get mad at God.
God knows what we need before we know what we need, and before we ask him.
Seek God in everything, and you will not have a want for anything. He will supply all your needs. Give, and it will be given back, more than you have given.
Matthew 6:8 (KJV) – be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Psalm 34:10 (KJV) – the young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
Philippians 4:19 (KJV) – but my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Luke 6:38 (KJV) – give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give up into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
