A quote from a blog post I just read that really made me think hard...

I don't think God is vengeful or does anything out of spite (frankly, He's got a lot of better things to do than poot around with our emotions), but I do believe that He allows "conflict" to help strengthen us and focus our goals and desires and intentions and ambitions on Him.

I think too all too often we all tend to use God as a very convenient scapegoat for any ills that may befall us. How often to we sit back and realize that many of the yucky things that come our way are actually of our own doing in the first place?
Someone makes us angry so we strive to "get even" and in the end, all too often, those efforts come back to bite us in the behind too. But how often to we recognize that was an error on our part initially? Little things like that morph into bigger things and can really explode big time in the end too!
Great post, Keith!
