How are you?

Are we cursing our blessings? Most of us would say no way! Well then let me ask you a question. How do you answer when others ask “How are you?” Think for a minute. Do you start on a list of your various aches and pains? Do you start listing your family problems? We are called to show the love of God to others. People are supposed to see that we are blessed because of a our relationship with Him. If all we ever do is complain about our physical aches and pains and how terrible we think our family is; who is going to believe we are blessed? We should be answering that question with blessings of our own. Instead of spreading negative words we should tell them I am blessed because I am alive, I have a family and God loves me. So I ask again How are You?
1 Peter 3:15
