It’s so easy to fly off the handle when things go wrong. Sitting in traffic with drivers trying to force their way into your lane. Standing in line while waiting on the person in front of you who is incompetent, inefficient, or both. Losing your job, a new opportunity, or worse, a loved one. It’s easy to love and praise God when things are good, but it’s just as easy to ignore our Christian beliefs in times of trouble. Jesus calls us to be consistent in our love and grace, both with others and ourselves. The standard was set by Him, and it’s our goal to live to that standard, in good times and in bad.
“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.” – Philippians 1:27 NIV
