>> Do not demand and expect other people to do things FOR you. Instead, demand highly of yourself in everything that you do, to self or to others.
>> We all go through bitterness and sufferings in life. And yes, God may allow them to happen to us. The most important thing though is not the suffering itself, but what we learn from it. Our response to the experience itself. We become wiser as a person only if we learn from our life’s experiences.
>> When we compare ourselves to others, we’ll tend to focus on how ‘their grass is greener than ours’, on how theirs seems ‘better’ than ours. We focus on ourselves and we often are led to feel that our situation is THE worst in the ‘world’.
This, unfortunately, will only lead to us complaining about everything.
Let’s learn to count our blessings instead, and focus on the lessons we should’ve learned from whatever experiences God allows us to encounter in life.
The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience.
