Lesson from coworker interactions

I remember times when I worked with disgruntled, grouchy, vindictive and malicious people. Then I overheard them speaking about church to a coworker. My first reaction in thought was, “Wow, based on your life and attitude, you actually know what bible and church is? Let alone reserve any vestige of an interest?” Eftsoons I thought this, a rebuking intuition flashed, “Based on your life, how do you think others see you in relation to the principles you supposedly espouse?” I had to take a seat and think about that in silence. My only shamefaced conclusion was “find a deep hole and stay there for some hours”.

My point: If honesty obliges us to speak, most of our spiritual lives are reminiscent of the stock market…up one day, down the next day. Fluctuating capriciously based on the event with a hardly discernible pattern of consistency. If a person was to assess our whole life and worth based on a downturn season in which we were struggling, this would be unfair. We would hope the grace of the benefit of the doubt would be extended us as we battle for liberation of ourselves. Likewise, we also have to extend that grace to others. Everyone lags far behind, so it is on our own journey we must focus.
