Can you imagine what life would be like if God were like sinful human beings? It would be terrifying. Consider how often we change our minds and how often our emotions swing from highs to lows and back again. We can be so unpredictable. In fact, it only takes one event, and in a moment of time, we can change from being very joyful to angry and bitter.

We can focus primarily on the circumstances of life and lose sight of the manifold blessings that God has bestowed upon us. We must always remind ourselves of the fact that God has dealt very kindly with us, according to His word!
