I like this quote…
Stop expecting you from people. Isn’t that how it works?
We think, “I would never do that” or “well if it were me…”
But we are all on a very different journey. We’ve all had different roads and we’re all very different people. And news flash! That’s intentional! Nevertheless, we still find ourselves expecting other people to act like us. But if we stop expecting us from other people then maybe we’ll be more open to what they do bring to the table. We’ll be more understanding to their responses and will value their contributions in a different way. I’m really grateful that when the Lord looks at me he doesn’t expect someone else. He expects me to be me because he knows me, he created me, and he loves me. The same goes for you. When we stop expecting other people to be just like us we can be delighted by who they are.
