Simple Sanity Saver: Repent. Rejoice. Repeat.
To learn and grow ourselves, we must rejoice.
Learning and growing is stifled by pride, anger, and bitterness. Rejoicing is not only the opposite of these vices, it is also the antidote.
When we’re on our guard, resentful, tight-fisted, angry, proud, our minds and hearts close up and harden. When we rejoice, our minds and hearts are open, receptive, and soft.
Of course, when we have closed ourselves off, we often cannot do the work of changing our heart. But God can and will if we ask and submit, giving up our bad attitudes for His good ones.
