to look at the donut and not at the hole”
That’s quit an amusing little ditty. It is also quite profound. Focus on what you have rather than what you don’t have. The donut is made for eating (just ask me!) while the hole cannot be eaten. When it’s time to eat, focus on what is in front of you and enjoy, not on what you wish was there and complain. If you keep your eye upon the donut, everything assumes its proper perspective.
It’s like in the garden! Do you remember the garden?
Don’t you remember? God gave Adam and Eve all the fruit of the garden, that’s the doughnut. The fruit that Satan gave them is the hole! They should have kept looking at the doughnut, not at the hole!”
This week we will all pause and observe a day our nation sets aside as a holiday. It is “Thanksgiving Day.”
Hopefully we will pause to focus on the donut and remember just how grateful we should be for the privileges and blessings afforded us by God. Happy Thanksgiving!
