How quick we are to forget that the world does not center around us. In fact, nothing regarding life is really about us. Our problems and difficulties may seem large to us because they are ours. But all of our griping, complaining, and mumbling and grumbling about everything that is going wrong just does not make it right.
God is amazing. He is so amazing because He rarely chooses the most talented, the biggest, the strongest, the most gifted, the best looking, or the most spiritual. He never makes decisions based on our outer appearances or the abilities that He has given us. He subtly reminds us that it really is not about us. The Bible says, "In the beginning, God..." What if it said, "In the beginning, you...?" How different the whole course of history would be if it was all about us, if in the beginning, we did something.
