Sylvester Stallone was named best supporting actor for his role in Creed at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Sly became so emotionally overwhelmed by the standing ovation he received that he forgot to thank a couple of people who normally receive recognition from winners. He neglected to acknowledge lead actor Michael B. Jordan and director Ryan Coogler. When he realized his oversight, he returned to the stage during a commercial break to try to rectify his mistake.
Coogler was not upset over what happened. Calling it an honest mistake, he said, “I love the guy and definitely don’t think it was intentional at all. He has already thanked us so much.”
Sometimes we realize that we have forgotten to give God the thanks that he deserves. Let’s live our lives in such a way that the Lord knows that it was a mistake, and that we have already thanked him for so much.
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”—1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
