Thought For The Week

‘One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.’ ~Dale Carnegie

A young man went to a Rabbi and asked, “How can I love God with my whole heart, since I see that there are bad parts in my heart too.” The Rabbi replied, “Well it seems you will have to love God with the bad parts too!”

We are often our own worst critics. We put ourselves down easy. We seldom give ourselves enough credit for all the roses blooming in our own lives. We tend to see the bad parts first and we almost magnify them. We allow them to choke out the roses. It’s time to throw away the magnifying glass as we journey through Holy Week. Yes we all have faults, weaknesses and limitations but we don’t have to magnify them.
