It’s so easy to blame other people versus to take responsibility ourselves.
It’s so easy to hold a grudge versus to forgive.
It’s so easy to find something wrong versus to find something right.
It’s so easy to express discontent versus to communicate happiness.
It’s so easy to give up versus to surrender.
It’s so easy to find false comfort in a lie versus to experience true joy in truth.
It’s so easy to live in sin versus to find satisfaction in God.
But what of the cost?
Prayer: Dearest Father, help us. Help us to be a people who are honest and truthful. Help us to be a people who take responsibility for what we do…or don’t do. Help us to be a people who accept the consequences we must for the poor choices we make. Help us to be a people who forgive and love. Help us to be a people who are patient and compassionate. Help us to be wise and not arrogant. Help us to desire what You desire and to be satisfied with what You determine as best. Help us to focus on You and not get caught up on that which matters not. Fill us. Change us. Take us. In the name of the Savior. Amen.
