Life Lessons

Sometimes people just amaze me. Plain and simple - the selfishness and just general ugliness is shocking. I guess I somehow walk around with a general opinion that people for the most part are good... and treat people with respect. Boy, does it come as a shock when people do the exact opposite.

The saying: "Consider the source" is particularly true at the moment, but it's no less disheartening.

I guess it just goes to show you that there truly is a light that comes with having Christ in your life - because honestly without him... I could have easily been a person just like that... treating others like pons in a giant game of chess. Or even worse... because it really is all about what people can do FOR them - and what people have done TO them.

Unless you can accept your own responsibility for your actions - you just end up being bitter. Which sadly pushes people away. So with that being said - I am so grateful that God is such an important part of my life... because without him... I certainly wouldn't be a light to the world.

I'm not a light everyday by any means, but I sure do try to be. It is a joy being able to share the love of Jesus Christ with those that are willing to accept it... and if they aren't - then at the very least I try to act in a way that would be an example of love.

I certainly hope that all of you are having a fantastic weekend - mine has been very low key... in hopes that I'll make a full recovery by Monday, but in an odd twist - my fever is back up tonight... so I'm headed to bed early in hopes that it will be gone in time for me to be the lead teacher in the 2-3 year old class at church tomorrow.
