“Tee Tee”

Tee Tee

So I was rocking my two-year-old this evening. Ever since we have had him he has said, “Tee Tee!” Normally when others hear him say that they think that he needs to “tee-tee” but what he is saying is , “Thank you!”

Now for some this may sound childish…well…it is! He’s only two-years-old! He’s a child! He acts like a child and he thinks like a child. But he says, “Tee Tee!” Have you noticed how there seems to be such a lack of gratitude now-a-days? People go about their business but they act as if they deserve whatever it is that you have done to show kindness to them. I noticed that when I open doors at restaurants for people they don’t even acknowledge me. But my two-year-old will say on their behalf, “Tee Tee!” When I went to the garage the other day to have some work done on my car, even the people behind the counter didn’t say thank you. But when they saw my two-year-old, he said, “Tee Tee!”

What’s happened to our society that we are a bunch of ingrates now? I pray that my two-year-old, and my six-year-old for that matter, never forget to be grateful. Oh, I’m sure they will be ungrateful at times. But I will do my best to help them to learn to be grateful for everything they have and everything that they are. God has given to us every thing that we need. Paul the apostle said it like this in Philippians 4:19:

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (NASB)

Paul again says in 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18:

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (NASB)

By the way, for you reading my blog, “Tee Tee!”
