12 Wealth and honor come from you;
   you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
   to exalt and give strength to all.
13 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
   and praise your glorious name. 
-- I Chronicles 29:12-13
 There are so many invisible things that we take for granted.  My daughters frequently don't see all the transportation and support their parents' supply, and often they complain that they aren't getting anything.  We often don't see our materialism or our privileged positions unless we lose all through some process.  We lose a job.  A diamond wedding ring falls down the drain.  We're wiped out by a tornado or earthquake.  A serious illness lays us out for months.  We're robbed.  The Chronicler recognizes from where all things come.   He points us all in the direction of not taking God for granted, but to give thanks and praise for all the wealth, honor, strength that we possess. God deserves this praise.  Spend a few moments listing what you have and sharing your appreciation with God.
