This is cross-posted on qm101.co blog…but I think it is applicable in a Christian context too…
I’ve used this analogy at home and at work to encourage people to keep their “eye on the prize.”
You want to get from point A to point B.
You should be able to go in a straight line. You have every right to be frustrated because you cannot go directly from point A to point B. It may be unfair that a straight line from point A to point B is being blocked.
The list could go on, but it all doesn’t matter, because…
Ultimately, you want to go fro point A to point B.
So, zigzag if you have to.
