Have you ever seen a young child putting their fifty cents into a machine that said “OUT OF ORDER”? When the machine does not deliver the desired candy bar they get upset, cry and pound or kick the machine, hoping to somehow get what is their right.
Often we are like children, demanding that life or someone deliver what we think is our right or we believe we deserve. While both of these may be true, we need to remember that life or people may not always deliver what might be our right, what we want, or even deserve.
What are you demanding of life or people that you are not getting? Have you ever thought of changing the source? Matt. 7:7-11 and Matt. 6:25-30 are good sources.
