lawofkindnessFrom Mary Beeke’s The Law of Kindness:

Our attitudes can steer our lives. When we nurture a spirit of discontentment in ourselves, we don’t like ourselves, we find fault in others, and we see our circumstances as unsatisfactory. Thus we spiral ever deeper into unhappiness. But the same circumstances look much better when our attitude says, “This is God’s providence in my life, and I will work to improve things. I am to love God above all and my neighbor as myself. I will depend on the Lord for all things. And I realize I am a sinner who doesn’t deserve the blessings I have. If Paul and Silas could sing in the prison, can’t I rejoice in my circumstances?”
