Go and Do Likewise

SHW subscribes to a few email devotionals.  Like all daily devotionals, some are well worth reading and reflection upon, while others aren’t worth the click of the mouse to delete them.  The other day she ran across one that made us both laugh out loud.  Jennifer Rothschild wrote blog post called, “5 Tips on How to Live a Miserable Life.”  Her 5 keys to misery are:

  1. Be totally self aware
  2. Be as negative as possible
  3. Expect everything to go your way all the time
  4. Take everything personally
  5. Assume you are always right

You can read the whole thing here.

I found this humorous, but also quite timely given the Gospel lesson for Sunday as it seems to give the antidote to a miserable life.  The keys to an abundant life are:

  1. Love God
  2. Love Neighbor
  3. Show mercy
  4. Go and do likewise
