He Must Increase - Day 137

If you any kind of "Type-A" person...not that I know this from experience...you will have ideas about how things ought to be. And frequently, when things don't go as they ought to...you will be frustrated. You will feel uneasy, annoyed, upset, or frustrated. But here's the thing; the times in life when things go your way are few and far between. If you get undone when things go differently than you'd hoped or planned; you will always be frustrated. And that's no way to live. It's especially not how Christian people should live. So here's a practical suggestion; find what is right with situations,circumstances and people. Some of you are building an argument against this as you read. Stop it! You're finding what is wrong. Looking for faults. Poking holes in the argument. Looking for justification to continue being controlling, uptight, and annoying. God certainly knows what is wrong with this world, but he also sees the redeeming qualities in all people and circumstances. As his followers, shouldn't we strive for the same? I challenge anyone who reads this to find something that is good in a situation, circumstance, or person today and post in the comment box.

Read the Bible in One Year Plan: 1 Chronicles 25-27
