1 Peter 5:5-7

"Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
1 Peter 5:5-7

This is a good thing to remember today. Often, in life, we run up against people who disagree with us... and, of course, they are SO wrong, and WE are right, and how could anyone ever doubt that? ... But even so, God asks us to let it go. And, yes, it is hard. But on the other side, it doesn't matter who is right and who is wrong... because the goal is peace. The goal is love. And truly... no matter how you spin it, God is right, and we are wrong when we get prideful and put other goals before those ones. Today, no matter how difficult it is, let's work on this... on letting our disagreements go, and on casting our cares on the Lord. It isn't always about who is right, but rather it is about whether we have a good relationship with God, who cares about us and wants us to learn this important lesson. No other outcomes can make up for the loss of the spirit. So, yeah... it's hard. But we've got the mighty hand of God on our side, and we can do it. :)
