Bible Reading:
Memory Verse: I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my
mouth. Psalm 34:1

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which
said: “I am blind, please help.” There were only a few coins in the hat. A man was walking
by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the
sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone
who walked by would see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people
were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign
came to check him out. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one
who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?” The man said, “I only wrote the
truth. I said what you said but in a different way. “I wrote: ‘Today is a beautiful day; but I
cannot see it.'”
Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was
blind. The second sign reminded people how fortunate they were to have their sight.
Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?
Lesson: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and
positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000
reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence.
Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear. It’s a beautiful
thing to see a person smiling. But even more beautiful if you are the reason for the smile!
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 14 – 16
Quote: A grateful heart is a “faith-full” heart. Gratitude raises your altitude.
Prophetic Decree: The Holy Spirit shall feel your heart with gratitude, in Jesus name.
Prayer Focus:

  1. Father forgive me of my ungratefulness in Jesus name.
  2. I receive the spirit of thanksgiving, creativity and innovation in Jesus name.
  3. Father, open my eyes to the good things happening in my life which I do not know.
  4. My situation shall not become my cauldron, in Jesus name.
  5. Today I shall locate my helper in Jesus name.
