What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself. – Abraham Maslow
Something finally started to sink in today and it’s this: We (I) need to be thankful in the hard things that life brings us and the difficult people we must interact with each day, for these are the measuring sticks for us to gauge just exactly where we (I) currently are along the path to becoming like Jesus.
Because He is our goal, right? To live like Jesus lives, and to love like Jesus loves is what each and every Jesus-follower is moving toward, isn’t it?
Well lately, it been very apparent to me that I have a long, long way to go. But now, instead of grumbling, mumbling, and complaining all the time about the tough things and problem people in my life, I can thank GOD for these since they provide me with the opportunities I need to develop and mature in the places I am weakest.
AWARENESS is the first step towards change!
