Life is a chore. Ups, downs, inconsistencies of others and then of self keep us in perpetual ying and yang of moods. We have moods galore. Until Jesus gets here, life about and among us will surely have its stressful terrain.
One of the zones hot for growth among us is insistency that Jesus is our life. This includes his exemplary dependence upon Father while he was both revered and rejected. The kingdom of God bears Holy Spirit fruit; none of which can be mimicked by humanity because an individual without the Spirit will ultimately cave to hatred, anger, harshness, and operating out of control when living under duress.
None of us are exempt from failure to yield to the Good Spirit. Intentions are solid; but behavior is not so much.
From experience I can say that a lot of things I thought were devastating turned out to be blessings from the classroom of Suffering 101. We must go to school when conditions are negative. What would Jesus do? is more than a rubber bracelet. It is the question to be raised when humanity is on the threatening ledge.
We learn to trust Him when we can no longer solve the puzzle. If we would begin our days with this in mind, we might not find ourselves on so many negative ledges. It really could be that our problems are such because we refuse to let Him use our frustrations to lead us to the Christ-Life.
Our understanding of What would Jesus do? is to be duplicated by you and by me. If we can increase in our actions mimicking his, we will find that even if more troubles arise, joy will exceed.
