Okay, let’s be honest here. Some things just don’t go down easy. Sure, it’s easy to get all holy-ed up, kind of like getting gussied up for a ball. Dressed in glitter and satin, it’s easy to feel great about singing with the angels–but loving others can be a real challenge.
Do you ever have those days when you are just in a snit? Days when your best effort is nowhere near enough to close the gap of all that needs to be done? Days when “just one more thing” is enough to push you over the edge of reason? Days when you just don’t like what the Bible has to say about things like patience, rejoicing, and kindness?
