What are some of the things that you consider to be wasted energy? The list might be long if I put all of our thoughts together because what is important to one person is not to another and thus the time spent on this project is considered wasted. This sort of personal choice is harmless, but there is one area that I think is always wasted energy and that is holding grudges. I say this because who in the end does it help? No one! The energy that it takes to hold onto these hurt feelings makes it almost impossible to experience all the other good things that are going on around the person. During this “Year of Mercy” let us all do ourselves a favor and decide to let go of those grudges that we have been holding onto tightly so that we will be able to see the joy and peace that is around us. To do so would not be wasted energy!
God’s continued peace,
