Well the free lunch we got at work wasn't THAT great.

Seriously, I'd need your question clarified a bit. Worthy of what gifts and why is this question posed in the War forum (ie. do you have some specific context in mind?).

Hi, btw!

No, but I shall endeavor to use them in a way which glorifies the giver of such gifts.

No, but i'm thankful for the grace - at least when i realize that it was a gift, sometimes i'm too blind to see gifts

wonders, why this in WAR forum?

I am a middle aged white man, living a charmed life.

I don't believe I have squandered my life.

I believe many get less than they should.

no.. and I know I live a blessed life so I try and give it back..but I've been given a hundred times over what I deserve but instead of feeling guilty about it ..my goal is to find ways to give that back and to use what I have to hopefully make things better..I dont always do the best job of it

No - but I think that that is a ongoing goal that you have to take your whole life to achieve. The goal here is to feel worthy of yourself and accept grace whenever you find it.

I have a wonderful family, a roof over my head, and food in my mouth. No one could ask for more--the good Lord has provided me with all I require and more. No I am not worthy.

Dreadsox, I think I know where you're going with your question, but I think it could be phrased differently.

All of us are worthy of anything good which happens to us because we are all children of God or of the Universe (however you want to phrase that) and God/the Universe would only want good things to happen to us.

The important thing is: are we using the gifts that Life gives us in a way that helps and encourages others? Are we being selfish with our gifts or judgemental unfairly towards others? Do we spread or listen to rumors and negativity? Do we have jealousies and envies in our hearts?

The way we answer these questions will decide whether or not we are worthy of the gifts that Life bestows on us.

Since I am a positive person, I will say that I am worthy of the good that God brings into my life because I try to share my gifts with as many people as possible and that is all God wants.

Thought-provoking thread.

I'm glad you brought it up, Dreadsox.
