Recently I was put in a position I didn't really ask for. It isn't a huge burden, but it does take some of my time and puts extra responsibilities on my shoulders. How do I approach this? How do I face this situation?
My natural inclination is to get frustrated with others that won't help. To feel very righteous that I am working and serving others while the rest of the crowd just takes and takes. I keep a little mental list of all who dont measure up to what I think they should be doing.
But. . .
What if I chose to be thankful for this way I can love God by loving others? What if I prayed for each person I am around and looked for God's image in them? What if my attitude was welcoming and warm? What if making others know they are precious was my highest priority?
What if I took all that energy I usually spend on being negative and blessed others with no expectations?
