Lowering our expectations

25 Oct

We spend so much of our time being disappointed with ourselves, others, and our situations, that we forget that when we do this, we’re placing our own expectations higher than God‘s. God knew that we would mess up and make mistakes, that’s why He sent Jesus to die for us. We need to learn, accept, and forgive our own, as well as the mistakes of others. This may sound contrary to what the world would say, but we need to learn to lower our expectations of people and learn that everyone is a sinner and falls short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23, All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God). When we place an unrealistic expectation on ourselves or others, we will fail, and our attitude will go from love to loath. So in closing, when someone falls short of what you expect out of them, ask yourself if they filed you, or God.
