We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. 1 Thessalonians 1:2
A Little Goes A Long Way
Professional athletes are often known for the extravagant taste, and Lamar Jackson, the quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens, is no exception. In 2019 Jackson spent around $100,000 on watches. There was just one thing about the watches that Jackson purchased. He didn’t keep any of them. For Christmas, Lamar Jackson purchased a new Rolex watch for each of his offensive linemen. While Jackson is a household name and was named the NFL Most Valuable Player in 2019, he went out of his way to thank the guys who help him every week accomplish the extraordinary athletic feats that he has become known for.
No matter how much credit we personally get, there is always someone who has helped us along the way. It may be the teacher that noticed your talent for art, who inspired you to take up a career in design. It may be the spouse that continued to support your hair-brained schemes until one of them finally worked out. It may be the people on your team at work, who in tough circumstances, continue to show up and do what needs to be done for the team to be successful. Whoever they are, we all know that “they” are there.
Friends, take some time to appreciate the “they” who are always there. You don’t have to buy them all Rolex watches, but a word of thanks and appreciation goes a long way. So take some time today to think of all of the people that help you shine. Those unsung heroes can often be overlooked, but you know without them, you wouldn’t be who you are. Once you think of who they are, tell them to thank you and pray for them. It may not seem like much, but trust me, a little thanks goes a long way.
