Okay, I know I'm not the only one who can relate to this caption. I've witnessed some of people's inflexibility at times. I want things around here to go back to 'normal.' Adjusting to a new normal is not an easy or welcomed idea. We all have our own ideas of what normal is in our own lives and that routine is our comfort zone.
We have things in our lives, like a car breakdown or a change in our jobs, that force us to change course whether we like it or not. My friend the other day said 'as I've gotten older, I've learned to be flexible.' I think that's the right attitude.. consider others besides yourself. Sure you could have done things differently or maybe even better but you are not an island. There are always factors to be considered beyond our own desires.
Even God knows the way He wants things to be, He gives us the choice to choose Him rather than us being robots. Freewill is God's way of being flexible, I think. It is the inflexibility of our hearts and minds that keeps us from taking that leap of faith.
