Our nature is to be always looking out for ourselves.
We call it survival.
We covet and call it love.
We take revenge and call it justice.
We call our opinions and words true and everyone who differs a fool, then point our finger wondering when will those people learn?
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
Life is about learning.
Learning to to love.
Learning to forgive.
Learning to live following Jesus.
Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11-13 NLT
Life is about learning to give thanks and rely on Jesus,
… not ourselves.
