So a scary thing happened recently. My son Adrian was bit by a neighbor's dog. Twice. Once near his ear.
By God's grace he's totally fine. A bruise, a scare and a couple cuts, but totally fine. (Parents are still recovering.)
Here's my thoughts:
How you react in adverse situations speaks about your relationship with Jesus. Anyone can react kindly to their neighbors when they keep their lawn neat and tidy and never have any issues. But how do you react when your kid gets bit by the neighbor's dog?
Tough circumstances show who you really are, who you truly follow and what's on the inside.
Nothing new here, but the lessons hit home when it's you.
