“Saying what you don’t like all the time leads back to two roots: Pride or Insecurity. Neither one is of God.”*
Hmm…. So thought provoking. You caught me red handed. I have really noticed myself focusing on what I don’t like about a situation, rather than what God might be doing in a situation or the “good” in that situation.
I wouldn’t consider myself insecure, but maybe I am. Maybe I’m insecure in where God has me, so I try to pull the worst out of the situation to reassure myself that I can make the situation better by realizing and assessing the “bad” and taking control.
Hm. I’m still thinking about this. I hope the quote means something to you and speaks to your heart.
