In any given day, whether watching the news, scrolling through social media, or chatting with people at work, we can’t help but hear about the latest “national argument.” However, contrary to popular belief, engaging in arguments is completely voluntary. But instead of choosing to engage or disengage, we have a third option in Jesus: transcend. When we place our focus on the awesome power for good God wields in our lives, and not our petty or political arguments, it is tough to complain! In Psalm 107, it says, “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Today, where others may bicker, choose to praise.
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” —Psalm 107:1 NIV
