Some days it's easier to be all of these things than others. Some days it takes a whole-hearted effort on your part and you still may fail. We are all prone to wander and give in to laziness, being unsympathetic to others and have our irritable moments. I know I'm not alone on this, right? We all have our days but it's important not to make it a habit. Is your reputation one like Lucy's?
'The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” Jeremiah 17:9-10
The key is to die to our own selfish desires and therefore, have a heart and life for God. We will then do for others with a willing heart, not be ignorant and dismissive to the pains of others and remain cheerful through it all.
