My friend, my guess is that you have every reason to be cynical about life! After all, haven’t you been short-changed, not given due respect… exploited, and shunted aside?
Of course you have! But isn’t that how most of us have been treated from time to time?
Sadly, cynicism brings with it the seeds of spiritual paralysis and ineffectiveness in ministering to others…
After all, who wants to be around a bitter, brittle fud who expends his energy decrying life’s injustices?
So how can we avoid this cancer of the soul? Here are a few suggestions:
- Stop grousing over the way it was… Especially if you were right.
- Accept the fact that in time your influence will probably diminish, and you will receive increasingly fewer accolades.
- Focus on what is right, not on what is wrong.
- Stay active in ministering personally to others. Getting “down and dirty“
