It has been said that God comes to us as our life.
One of the things I think this helps us think about is how we learn from our life. Yesterday I wasn't feeling well and had to miss one of the highlights of my week. It was a lesson in obedience and humility. Not one I wanted to learn but better to learn from life than not to learn at all.
There are other opportunities as well. Difficult people help us learn to love our enemies. Financial issues help us trust providence and deepen our intercessory prayer life. Our spouses can teach us vulnerability and traffic can teach us patience and help us see where our anger level is.
There are constant opportunities in our lives to help us grow into more Christ like character. We need to open our eyes and see these opportunities.
How are you learning from life?
