Have mercy! Empathy, I believe, is influenced by acknowledging our own imperfections. A self examination in knowing I’m flawed lets me love myself. Creativity puts this into perspective. For instance, knowing what I appreciate, what I enjoy doing, gives prospects for improvement.
Love allows me to expect the best. The best outcome during unpredictable times, love nurtures hope. Quality of life follows sensible choices. Parents want happiness, joy, and certainly hope their babies choose wisdom. Unconditional love is unique. A loved one screws up, first instinct is to react with anger. Yet, forgiveness heals. Love and faith are known to defy all odds. That’s powerful!
Emotions cannot control us. Our reaction is a natural instinctive state of mind to circumstances, moods, or relationships. These are sentiments. My opinion is my own attitude. Opinions are subjective to change.
“[Prayer …] is not an attempt to force God’s hand, but a humble acknowledgment of helplessness and dependence. [… It] is not we who control the world; it is not in our power […] to supply our needs by our own independent efforts; every good thing that we desire for ourselves and for others must be sought from God, and will come, if it comes at all, as a gift from His hands.”
J. I. Packer
