You Will Find What You Are Looking For

I have found that you can find a reason to justify almost any action. I am not talking about sin, although people find a reason for that too. No, I am talking about finding a reason to do some action, any action.

Do you want to be mad at your spouse or do you want to love them? You can find a reason.

Do you hate your job or love it? You can find a reason.

Do you think your children are the best in the world or possibly the opposite? You can find a reason.

Do you want to leave your Church or would you rather stay? You can find a reason.

Do you love the preacher or do you hate him? You can find a reason.

Do you want to go to worship or stay home? You can find a reason.

Do you want to praise God for your life or be angry and bitter? You can find a reason.

The list could go on and on and on and on and …

The tendency of each one of us to focus only on the facts that agree with what we already feel. We hear the facts that support our views and ignore all information to the contrary. It is extremely hard to be objective about the world no matter how hard you try.

So what are you looking for today? You will find what you are looking for.

  1. To a point I totally agree with you but what about the times you want to share love, offer support, be included and people keep rejecting you? When is the time right to shake the dirt off is your shoes and just leave it at the door step and just walk away.
    I agree we should always look at the positives in all situations. But when you keep going back to the same place and getting hurt over and over again, 7 x 70? But isn’t it better to sometime to walk away than to keep getting your felling hurt and wounding your spirit?
    Just asking for spiritual direction
