I am sure we are all familiar with the often used glass half full/half empty illustration. Mathematically there is no difference between the glass half full or half empty but the way one sees the glass makes the world of difference. With a fearful attitude one will see the glass’s emptiness as a threat and its half fullness as a disappointment. A faith filled attitude will see the glass’s half fullness with thankfulness and the empty portion as presenting an opportunity.The ground-down mother of a persistently demanding five-year-old says sweetheart it's whatever you want it to be, just please let mummy have five minutes peace and quiet.The waiter will hurry to replace the glass with a full one. For him there are no doubts: the glass was empty when he took it away; it is full in the bill that he brings you.
The Pursuit of Happiness in an unhappy world Part 1
Psalm 37:1-7 NLT <br />A psalm of David. Don't worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. 2 For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither. 3 Trust in the LORD and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. 4 Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you your heart's desires. 5 Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust Him, and He will help you. 6 He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. 7 Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for Him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.<br />
Psalm 37<br />Cultivating the right attitude of faith for happiness and opportunity. <br />I see the half full glass and am thankful.<br />I see the half emptiness and see opportunity.<br />
