“Not my Monkey, not my Circus”…some practical wisdom for a Monday.
I think we take too much stress on ourselves about the actions and thoughts of others. Maybe we think the bible said: “It’s up to you to keep the peace with all people all of the time and if you don’t your failing”???
“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” NIV
When in actuality it says: “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you” = meaning you can only take responsibility for your part of the situation and “If it is possible” says there may be times when it won’t even be possible to be at peace with someone.
It’s good to take time and figure out what is actually your responsibility and what isn’t. Own what is and stop trying to own what isn’t.
