Bumps, dips and ditches

Wednesday June 6th, Romans 5: We continue to shout our praise even when we're hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. Life does not always go smooth. There are dips and bumps on the road of life for us all. When you meet someone who possesses that something we call “character,” it is not because the road has gone smooth, it is because they have learned to handle the bumps, and in the process inherently know that there are bumps there for everyone. It should not be the bumps, dips and ditches in life that should put political campaigns in jeopardy, but rather, the seeming lack of them, or the callousness the comes from thinking you can go them alone. In political circles, the so called “self made man or woman” should be a red warning flag with a flashing neon sign.
