|Time to clean up a bad habit?|
2 Corinthians 9:7b. NIV
My daughter’s words stung, and they brought me up short. I always want to live a true, real spiritual life, and my wrong attitudes were showing! My actions, attitude, and frustrations were affecting her in a negative way. Enough so, that she wanted me to quit my job. I hate being negative ... but it comes so easily! My oldest son said essentially the same thing to me a couple times that year; he commented that I wasn’t much fun to be around because I always was looking at the bad side of things. He teasingly called me, “Miss Negative.” I really didn’t realize how much it had become a part of me, and I didn’t know to what degree I was being negative or perceived as negative. I love the Lord, and I want to live out my spiritual life, to not compartmentalize the spiritual from the daily stuff of life. I started paying more attention to my words. It was hard work.
|Now, get started.... :)|
“God loveth a cheerful giver.” Amen!
