Responses to unexpected events provide glimpses into the heart. These unexpected responses may reflect God’s transformation, love, grace, encouragement, and forgiveness. They can also reveal areas where we need God’s touch. Areas where pride and fear still need to be washed away by God’s love. Where worldly perspectives and personal biases need to be confronted by God’s truth and confessed with a humble heart. Where we need to turn from ingrained behaviors and focus on building up others. What do your responses reveal about the condition of your heart and leadership?
Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. – 1 Peter 2:1-3
Prayer: Lord, use my unexpected responses to whet my appetite for Your love and grace and forgiveness. Let me grow up into the image of Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
