It could happen to you

“I can’t believe this is happening to me!”

“Could you believe he actually said that about me?”

“I can’t believe she would think that about me!”

These are things we’ve all said and heard. So let me just say this.

If Moses‘ leadership could be questioned.

If Joseph could get framed for something he didn’t do.

If David could be hated by his in-laws.

If Paul could be called a heretic.

If Jesus could be called a blasphemer.

…ya….believe it. It really could happen to you.

Not saying it’s fair, or right, but you better believe it could happen to you. Stop being surprised, and move on with your life.

    How do you define moving on when dealing with in-laws?

      By “moving on” I mean not getting bogged down by the fact that they are wrong about you, or it isn’t fair, or that you’re offended. These things happen to everyone and it’s almost NEVER fair or right, so we have to move past any personal offence, and just deal with the situation at hand. Letting go of the fact that it’s “not fair”, and not feeling like we have to go back and right past wrongs often can bring clarity to what our actual options are.
