We get a choice every day. Not because it’s easy, not because it’s tied up with a bow, and not because we’re in a season where we are strong enough to handle it. We have a choice, even though it doesn’t look like we always wanted or expected, because it matters. We have a choice, even though we’re not strong enough, because God is. We have a choice every day, to show up for people, to love people, to forgive people, to choose to see the best in people, to choose to assume the best with their intentions, to be patient when their growth doesn’t mirror our own or our words.
We get the choice every single day.
Because it matters.
