Road work is never easy to deal with, especially when they are working in front of your house and you have to park a block away. Most people are dealing with it in an adult-like manner, but others, not so much. Volunteering to be on the homeowners association is challenging and maybe something I’m regretting just a little, however, I know God has a lesson in it for me. So I get a call early in the morning from someone who is very upset about the situation. I had given my phone number so that anyone who may have health issues and needed to park closer could call me. Parking closer wasn’t good enough for him, he wanted us to postpone it. I guess he thought I was going to let him run over me like a bulldozer, but I didn’t! He was nice by the end of the conversation. The point of me telling you all of this is, you will never please everyone. Your best bet is to spend your limited days on this earth pleasing God, because in the end, He’s the only one that matters. I’m not mad at that cranky, miserable old man, I just feel sorry for him.
For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. Romans 8:6-8
