Realize that our little worlds get boring, but we don’t get boring to Him ever!
Paul asks a great, pertinent question, “What did you gain from it all?” At the end of the day, what did we gain from our behavior? We are beginning to learn what doesn’t work, such as the roller coaster of self-loathing, producing only a self that we hate. What have we gained from the obsession with hurts caused by those we love and the constant replaying of this or that offense? What have we won from recounting a disagreement or the slander of another, even if for argument’s sake we are right? Remember three things. 1) We are to hold a crown above those perceived to be beneath us so that they might even rise above us. 2) We cannot judge the slave of another Master. 3) We have not changed one hair white or black on our own head, so what do we think we will do for others? It is time to move beyond the obsession with self or others and begin to consider the One, Jesus, who will bring a lift to our spirit. “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth,” Colossians 3:2. “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things,” Philippians 4:8. Realize that our little worlds get boring, but we don’t get boring to Him ever! The drivel does, however, get boring.
