….. just pondering

DSC_1596abcWe pick on other’s “misfortunes” and their being different from us,and use it to define them. We think we are better, we are on a pedestal, more powerful, and we think it is relieving when we see other’s imperfections. We are so quick to assume that’s who they are base on what we hear and our own judgement. So quick to bring them down. We forgot to look at ourselves, and ponder on our unfortunate circumstances. I am sure, we have our worst nightmares, failures and heavier burden than those we belittle. We probably are living less than them, happier and content, stronger than we think.

Our hateful soul, grudging spirit, and false mouth has its own place… and this, is very true: “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Luke 6:45

Stay away from trouble.

Let go of the hate.

Stop being judgmental.

Be empathetic.

(most importantly) Always guard our hearts.

Envy

‚ÄčIt is a sad truth that it is difficult for people to celebrate other’s achievements, doubtful of how they got there, and would even wish it belongs to someone else because the one who worked hard to achieve it, they like the least or maybe they don’t like the achiever at all.

Envy ruins the soul. 

Let’s rejoice the day that the Lord has made even when He planned our days different. He have His reasons. 

Let us not allow our hearts to ache out of our fellows happiness. 

Be cheerful. Be grateful. Let’s celebrate with them. 


A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.  Proverbs 17:22
