Expectations can be deadly

September 13, 2013

Has someone let you down? Of course. Me too.

“Expectations are like rifles. Used correctly and appropriately, they are valuable and necessary. But, oh, how quickly they are misused . . . Quietly we pull the trigger. ‘You let me down.’ And we both fall victim to the bullet of expectation.”

“Expectations. Alone, they are bullets that can kill; but buffered by acceptance and forgiveness, they can bring out the best.”  -Max Lucado, No Wonder They Call Him Savior

Father, help me to be a husband, dad, pastor, and friend with high expectations accompanied by greater acceptance and forgiveness.
