This leads to my next thought of people when we don’t respect other people’s time or when we don’t understand them being ‘on their grind,’ which means being fully committed to whatever their vision is. Thinking about it, it’s such a selfish thing for people to do. To take the fact that one is busy being productive and they aren’t as a reason to have an attitude. The self-centered people don’t articulate their thoughts this way, but that is what it essentially boils down to. They’re selfishly focused on their needs, wants, desires, and plans without consideration to anyone else’s. An attitude that is a cover up for what they are or not doing, a cover up for the fact that they don’t have the discipline/drive to pursue what their too afraid to do or lack the confidence to do. Rather than be selfish or jealous, it’s too easy to see what other’s are doing and take it as motivation to pursue their desired dreams, goals. And don’t get me started on when people take Facebook posts as an indicator of what is solely/exclusively going on in one’s life. I mean really some people post EVERYthing on Facebook, but not everyone does that…I don’t know…I sometimes think that if we, as people, considered His Word the way we consider Facebook, how much better off we’d be!
As I’m keying this, I’m really thinking that it all boils down to we as people are seeking something in others/things that can only be filled by our Creator. We truly only find ourselves in Him and only see ourselves when we see ourselves through His eyes—redeemed.
That’s my twenty-nine cents. Blessings.
