Wrapping It Up, Pt.1 can be found here.
Pt. II: Last year, on May 13th, I began reading “The One Year Daily Insights With Zig Ziglar and Dr. Ike Reighard. The book had been recomended by a friend and there has not been a single day that I have not meditated on the daily reading. It is usually the very first thing I do after feeding and taking the dogs out. It is a habit.
This snippit from today’s insight might be a coincidence, but then again . . .
Prison or Classroom
Life is all about perspective. If we see difficult people and painful situations as threats, they become prisons for our souls. Like inmates at medieval dungeons, we languish away for days and weeks, wishing the problem would just go away, or we try frantically to get out any way we can.
Whether our problems are caused by our own dumb mistakes, the sins of others, natural disasters, or anything else, our difficulties can, instead of dungeons, become classrooms where we learn life’s greatest lessons — if we’ll pay attention to them.
