As I battle with frustration with our insurance company, Kevin DeYoung had some helpful thoughts for me about my attitude of entitlement to a fair life. Read his entire post here.
"But there’s another way to look at the world, another way to experience life, and that’s through the lens of grace. With these glasses on you’ll reckon that most days are a whole lot better than you deserve. And on the really hard days, you’ll fight to believe that God is working even this for good. With the glasses of grace, you’ll smile when other people succeed. Instead of experiencing life as a series of disappointments and occasions where you were not given the treatment you deserve, you’ll experience life as a gift. You’ll see grace all around you. You’ll celebrate the grace you see in someone else or given to someone else. It’s a profoundly different way of viewing the world."
I don't want to miss the abundance of grace that fills my days because I'm spending my time focusing on what I think I deserve.
