"Cynicism is a unique trap. Cynicism is carnality that thinks it's smart." ~ Beth Moore
OUCH! is right!!!!
That just bit me square in the center of my foster-mama behind!
I'm not sure that anything in my life has bred cynical reactions and attitudes for me like foster care. Cynicism has almost, at times, been my protection from looking foolish.
Preventing me from feeling disappointed.
Perhaps a numbing.
There again....reality bites!
The problem with this.....
It leaves no place for Hope.
No room for healing.
No opportunity for improvement.
And frankly, it's flat our arrogant.
Yea, that one hurts sinking in too.
"But He gives more grace. Therefore it says, 'God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble'."
