This morning I read where a High School teacher was making a point with her class. The students were asked if they had $86,400, would they concern themselves if someone stole $10 from them? She went on to say that is the number of seconds in a day so if someone offended them, it would probably take 10 or so seconds to do so. Would they give them more of the day by ruminating , playing and replaying it mentally? That is our choice!
“You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” Psalm 16:11 This can only work if we refuse to be impressed with small things that try and steal our joy.
