Treat in a careless or indifferent manner. Fail to properly appreciate (someone or something), especially as a result of over-familiarity.
Why must it sometimes take a major encroachment or things come to a turbulent head before we realize the importance of someone or something? It isn’t until a small change takes over that we understand what is basic to many can be a lifesaver for others.
Let’s ask ourselves; what do we Take For Granted? Additionally, would we miss all of the things we take for granted with a heartbreaking vengeance?

take-nothing-granted: If we have a life distressing medical condition, one would believe it would engender sympathy, understanding, offers of help and practical assistance. Yet, we can help ourselves simply by taking less for granted… I should add, we all take life for granted. Reality kicks in when a vacancy appears in our lives, we then learn to appreciate those simple things.

Everything in the world is about to be wrapped up, so take nothing for granted. Stay wide-awake in prayer. Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless – cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it:
