April 19, Today’s thought – Dealing with Debt

April 14-15 003 African Daisy

Good Morning

Doesn’t someone owe you an apology?
A second chance?
An explanation?
A thank you?
A childhood?
A marriage?
Your parents should have been more protective.
Your children should have been more appreciative.
Your spouse should be more sensitive.
What are you going to do?
Few questions are more important.

Dealing with debt is at the heart of your happiness.
Jesus speaks of the grace we should share.

He says: “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” (Matthew 6:14).

It reminds me of the story of a huge grizzly bear
in the center of Yellowstone Park
feeding on discarded camp food.
No one dared draw near.
Except a skunk who walked toward the food
and took his place next to the grizzly.
The bear didn’t object.
He knew the high cost of getting even!
We’d be wise to learn the same thing.
