Waiting without the whole story.

Just a little story this week – pause with me for a minute and think about this, and what it challenges in you.

Two beggars knocked on the door asking for bread. One beggar was given a loaf and sent away. The other was kept waiting and waiting. At length, the second beggar became concerned.

“Why am I being denied? What is so lacking in me that the other one was favoured over me?” he asked himself. Unknown to the beggar, a fresh loaf was being baked for him inside the house.

Patience in the process of waitingHow often do we see things in two dimensions, with our own filters on, and solely from our own limited perspective?

Perhaps this Advent waiting season is a chance to stop and think –

How quick are we to make judgements on circumstances or events around us?

Are we living life at a frantic pace, and what do we risk by not slowing down?

What blessings await us as we show patience in the process of waiting?

How can we show grace, kindness, gratitude even in the uncertainty and lack of clarity during the wait?

Simply food for Advent thought.
