Why do we get angry? Why are we impatient? Why do we fail to be kind and gentle? Why do we hold a grudge or act out of vengeance? Why do we refuse to cooperate?
Why do we say things to one another that should never be said? Why do we walk away? Why would we lie to someone or seek to manipulate them?
Why are we competitive and envious? Why do we struggle to celebrate another’s blessing?
We do all of these things for one reason: We want our own way, in the way we have chosen, and at the time we have think is best.
We love us and we have a wonderful plan for our lives! The problem is that those dreams and plans are not the Lord’s!
Agendas: “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.” (Matt 6:24)
