Multitude Monday, Take 211

"Today you will spend solitary moments of conversation with yourself either listing your complaints or counting your blessings. You can gaze over the fence and covet another person's life or tell yourself that God has blessed you in ways you never could've earned. You can tell yourself that God's not fair or thank him that he's not fair because fair would mean your and my doom." (Paul Tripp, Twitter)
