do you see what they see?

It's easy to snap your fingers at others and demand everyone accept you for who you are. After all, we live in a world that says you are to push back on any constructive words someone offers you.

It is far more productive, however, to actually grow in uncomfortable ways.

Not to appease others, but because we all have blind spots that others can see more clearly than we can.

Granted, sometimes other people don't know what they're talking about.

More often, though, we claim that merely as an excuse to do as we want, and not as we ought.

So... which will it be today?

If you aren't sure, think about who you are mad at... versus instead of using that energy to be madly working at what they've pointed out.
"Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses." (Proverbs 27:6)
