I was working on a project yesterday and ran into a small glitch. Someone who had worked on the home prier to me had messed up and needed to come back, so that I could get my work done. The man had returned and was not in a happy mood. He was rude and cussing, knowing that he had messed up. He was blaming it on everyone but himself, including me. After I showed him the problem and gave advice on how to fix it his attitude had changed. He was coming to me wondering what he should do and after I explained, he would go and do it. In the past I would have blown up and yelled at him and probably ended up in a fist fight. But over the years God has been humbling me when it comes to pride. I’m not the greatest and mess up at work from time to time. This guy had actually done a really nice job on this project, he just had a little hick up. After lending him my tools and knowledge, he was able to complete the task and we talked a while. I took his phone number and told him that he did a great job and if I needed help I would call him. That wasn’t the amazing part however. The rest of the day my job had worked out perfectly, everything lined up and looked beautiful. The homeowner showed up and was so excited, she also said that she felt bad for the set back with the other man and was going to compensate me for the day. She wasn’t taking”no” for an answer! God is good! People are going to have bad days just the same as you, just remember that all throughout the Bible, Jesus was kind and patient with everyone. WWJD. Heavenly Father thank you so much for yesterday thank you for the patience and love that you gave me and direction to be able to help that man. Help me to do the same today to where I can love everyone I come in contact with. In Jesus precious name amen.
