What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? – 1 Corinthians 4:7
1. Be thankful for them.
2. Receive them as mercies and not dues. 1 Chro. 29:14
3. Prepare to part with them. See Job.
4. Expect the continuance of mercies from God: he is the strength of our life, and staff of our bread, the breath of our nostrils, and the length of our days.
See John 3:27, James 1:17, 1 Peter 4:10
