I wasn’t feeling great this morning. A potent mixture of sin and self-pity.
I read of Mary the mother of Jesus. Her life has rcently been blown apart by the news that she has the special privilege of becoming an unmarried mother (at a ridiculously early age), that people will call her names, cast aspersions on her character, shun her socially for years to come and much more. What was her response, Luke 1:48 Msg,
I’m the most fortunate woman on earth!
Scripture seems to have a good habit of turning me from my self-absorbed, sin-saturated life and making me realise God has a different perspective, and maybe I should too.
