Wednesday – 10/6/15

Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. (‭Phi 2‬:‭14). Imagine going to the zoo with a cranky and undisciplined five-year-old. You take the child to see the lions, but he is sulking because you did not buy him candy. You take him to see the zebras, but he is angry because he does not want to hold your hand in the crowd. You take him to see the monkeys, but he is having a fit because he wanted French fries. You buy him French fries, but he leaves them uneaten because he complains that they are soggy. At the end of the day, he did not see lions, zebras, and monkeys, nor did he eat French fries. He has had a miserable day, and so have you. The child transformed what could have been a wonderful experience into a horrible one for no good reason. (Excerpt from the complainer and the atheist). The worst part of this is that this is not a trip to the zoo. This is your life. If you spend it fussing and sulking, you will never enjoy the good things Papà is continually doing for you – actually, you will never even notice them.

Time to talk to Papà. X
