An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, "Let me tell you a story: I have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times".
Which way do you wake up in the morning? Which one will you feed today? When we wake up with praises to the Lord our day will be a better day. But if we wake up being grouchy and forget who gave us this day, our day will get no better. We need to be thankful for another day that the Lord has given to us.
