It’s amazing how whatever stays on your mind throughout the week is addressed at church. God’s funny that way.
This past week my mind keeps a going back to several moments when people around me have been less then kind. Actually, down right abrasive with no good reason.
Their behavior leaves me feeling baffled. You see it’s not just one person this week its a few. I can’t help but think that it must be so hard to carry the burden of being mean on purpose. To be unhappy on purpose requires so more much energy then just smiling.
When faced with these moments I need to remind myself not to let their actions ruffle my feathers. As always, God reminds me I need to extend grace to these people and be a better person.
So if for some reason you suddenly see me stand back, you just may be the person who’s being abrasive. Don’t worry, I’ll be praying for you.
