Looking At Life

One thing we can always try to do is to see the best in the worst.

Two men look through the same bars: One sees mud, one the stars.

It sounds trite and commonplace. But it is profoundly true, and it sums up half the philosophy of life.

“In the world you shall have tribulation,“ said Jesus to His disciples in the darkest hour of His life, “but be of good cheer.“

There you have a gospel. Jesus did not flinch from the hard facts of life, the indisputable facts of sorrow and suffering. He did not say adversity should be taken from us. But He taught us to look through the sorrow and beyond the suffering, to see the best as well as the worst.
