This time my inspiration comes from the pastor’s wife, at the church I most often am at on Sundays.
It was on her part an innocent observation to one of the church’s outreaches. She was thanking the members for all their time, energy and money, which helped get clothing to the people who need it in our community. The Andy Stanley quote she used that caught my attention is:
“Curb discontentment by becoming more aware of what people don’t have and less aware of what you think you need.”
Initially, hearing this made me a little sad. I didn’t make time to participate in the particular event. Then as I continued to think on it, other thoughts started to percolate for me.
I realized how maybe on my blog, I might be more aware of what I need and less aware of what others don’t have.
I wonder if you can relate that to your writing or blogging?
