Was praying this morning about a few situations happening in my life and these thoughts came to me…
As much as you are disappointed in someone, someone else can be as equally disappointed in you…and they probably are.
As much as you are frustrated with someone, someone else can be as equally frustrated with you…and they probably are.
As much as you are upset with someone, someone else can be as equally as upset with you…and they probably are.
The devil loves to play with our mind and get us distracted by focusing on other’s faults and shortcomings.
But this is what the Bible says:
Edify each other.
Encourage each other.
Pray for each other.
Love each other.
If we do THOSE things, we will find that we can’t stay mad, upset or frustrated with others because we will be reminded that we make mistakes too!
I am not perfect. Something I need a reminder of every single day.
We will not handle every situation right, we will not always say the right thing at the right time, we will stumble, we will struggle, we will be confused and confusing, we will make mistakes. We are human.
With that being said, we should strive to be better. Do better. Love better. Give better. Hope better. Say it better. Encourage better.
We can’t stay like we are just because we want to!
We have to strive to be like Christ…In. Every. Single. Thing. We. Do. Always and forever!
