"Sure, Easy for You to Say"Stuart Jones We spend a lot of time looking at other people. We observe people at work, at school, in traffic and at the next restaurant table. And if that’s not enough, the average person spends 1.72 hours per day on social media,* which is one more way to see what other people are doing. Often, what we see is frustrating. Wives are prettier and husbands more handsome. Children are smarter and better athletes. Cars are newer, homes bigger and pets don’t chew up furniture. At least that’s how it looks. The full story is rarely in view. Chronic illnesses and pain lurk just below the outward beauty. There are children struggling with peer pressure and bullies and jobs filled with stress and insecurity. Still, envy creeps into the picture. We see the good circumstances of others and the bad circumstances of our lives. There is a better way to look at life. Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV) *globalwebindex.net
