Kirk Franklin’s son, Caziah, is sharing some lessons he is learning about entitlement while doing missionary work in Haiti.
While in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the 17-year-old son of gospel music artist, producer and record label head Franklin took to Instagram to challenge people to be more grateful to God.
“Think about the last time you truly thanked God for something. Imagine if it was ripped away from you,” he wrote Sunday. “Entitlement is what destroys our joy within our thankfulness. We always compare to what others have and are never satisfied with anything…but I got to witness what true thankfulness looks like.”
Caziah gave people a glimpse of what he has experienced in Haiti where the poverty-stricken people he met still live with gratitude.
“This week I’ve met children, parents, elders; people that have little, and rejoice in their little. People that call upon and have full faith within God and have no doubt in the strength and power of God,” he revealed before asking some challenging questions.
“Why can’t we love our God like these people do… He’s my father. And I love him so much, and I’m so thankful to get to spend time with these kids because they have truly shown me what thankfulness looks like.”
