My wedding was more than 40 years ago. Our marriage has seen its battles. An oft-repeated theme is “You take me for granted!” And it’s true; we each expect the other to pick up the slack–with no recognition, no gratitude.
Beloved Lord Jesus, I confess that I personally and your Church corporately are guilty of taking you for granted. We ignore you till there’s a crisis, and then we assume that you will protect and provide for us–with no recognition, no gratitude. Thank you, dear Jesus, for not doing to us as we do unto you.
