Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive message minute!

You know, America really is the land of opportunity because every single person has the opportunity to become a tax-payer!  In case you haven't heard, TODAY IS TAX DAY, the one day of the year that makes more liars out of people than golf

With all the joking aside, can I just share with you some thoughts that help me through taxes?  As I did the dirty deed of dropping a check in the mail, I tried to remember the following.

  • I am blessed with a free education.
  • I enjoy safe drinking water.
  • I have parks to play in.
  • I have paved roads to drive on.
  • I have few cares because a relatively safe place to live compared to much of the rest of the world.

I know that tax day can hurt, especially if you drop a check in the mail like me.  Trust me though, it'll soften the blow if you try to remember the wisdom in 1 Thessalonians, "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." (1 Thess 5:18)

So today, if it is a day you dread, try to give thanks for the benefits you have received because of it.  You'll be glad you did.
