VIBES WITH NKS-- DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF



DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF 






Psychologist Richard Carlson is given credit for this wonderful two-part advice on dealing with stress: 1. Don't sweat the small stuff. 2. It's mostly all small stuff


Most of us find ourselves getting wound up over issues that, in larger scheme of things, are not at all important. We want to badly to be right that we fry relationships to prove our point. We argue, but to what end? We hold ancient grudges, but whats the point? We assume that we are cursed, that we are doomed to have everything go wrong for us in the end. When we are looking for bad news, we can usually find it.



God has a better way. Just as he choose to forgive us, giving fresh supplies of grace and mercy each morning, he invites us to show that same bigheartedness to the 'fools'around us.

"A man's wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense" (proverbs 19:11) We don't have to be right all the time. We don't have to point out every sin and flaw in the people around us. We can let go of the judging and trust that God will get it right in the end.




What matters is enjoying God's love for us and loving the people around us.
Even as we prepare ourselves for this festive season, lets also try to avoid the petty arguements and fights. Make peace with all those you are not in good terms with, avoid those who try to bring trouble your way.




Just last week an old vandal met his untimely death when he got into an arguement with a colleague, if only he knew that will be his last he would have avoided that debate. In same manner i urge all of us not to sweat over the small stuffs in our lives, forgive and let go easily and enjoy what God has for you.
