My Mom May Have a Point :)
Recently, my mom told me that when I'm in the zone of working on my homework or a project, I tend to speak rudely to those around me just because I am so consumed with keeping my grades up. At first I didn't want to see it, but after reading these past three days of devotionals, I have realized that she knew what she was talking about. I have discovered that when I'm stressed about school, I do not have a sincere love for people, and that really makes me a little upset with myself. I have thought about this and have realized that if I put my relationships first and truly love others (even when I am stressed) I would have no reason to talk rude to them. I would no longer be consumed with my school work, but consumed with loving and bringing out the best of the people around me. This summer while working on houseboats, there will stressful times, but through these devotionals, I have learned that by truly loving all the people around me, and bringing out the best in them, I won't be consumed with the stress and problems I am facing that week, and then I will be better able to minister and serve the campers on the boat.
