Luke 4: 24-30

This story serves to remind us that we often overlook good things in life just because they are familiar to us. That is what happened in Nazareth. The people had known Jesus so long and thought they knew him so well, that they did not see anything impressive about him. That is almost inconceivable, and yet we do the same thing. We get so bogged down in the routine of life that we fail to see the good things. Instead of wanting and wishing for more, why don’t we take time today to look at the gifts we already have?
