Are You Demanding?

264fda8c7024c1c59ad405c34d33ea66Do you ever think that you are a demanding person?  No one wants to accept that they are demanding?  We might say that we are just particular.   You might be called high maintenance!  In reality this all comes down to being about ” SELF”  I know this is a tough subject.  However we all at times are demanding and selfish.

We use excuses about why we are the way we are.  The Bible says we are to be kind.  In Psalm 107: 8-9 states “so lift your hands and thank God for his marvelous kindness and for all the miracles of mercy for those he loves. How he satisfies the souls of thirsty ones and fills the hungry with all that is good!”  Ownership is never fun when it is a flaw.  To be more we must do more than make excuses.

Challenge:

What can you do to be more like Jesus!  How can we not be demanding or self centered!  How can we approach life differently that shows others an approach of honor while building up not tearing down.  Take time to ask questions instead of demand.

God knows your needs, seek him in all matters- Noah was told to build an Ark.  His neighbor’s surely thought he was crazy!  yet for 120 years he waited on God.   Noah waited on God.  He did not demand God to send the rain he waited knowing to trust in the Lord.   James 4:10 reminds “Be willing to be made low before the Lord and he will exalt you!”
