One night his dad appeared to him in a dream. The man asked his dad why his dad had not helped him with guidance or assurance of any kind.
The father replied, "Son, we really don't care about the business up here. What we care about very much is what you become because of your business."
That is a great lesson I hope I will never forget. What we get in life is inconsequential, but what we become in life makes all the difference.
What we become on the inside makes all the difference.
Our experiences build and shape our souls into fountains of pure clean water or filthy dry empty wells.
It takes constant filtering to keep our soul water moving and clear.
How clear is my soul water today?
Last night: Bad.
I was feeling resentment. I prayed for it to go away. Today resentment is gone. I feel clear, even though the situation hasn't changed. Only my heart has changed. It feels better.
Yay, Christmas will feel better!
