Had a frustrating day? Imagine the frustration we inflict on God daily

Mark Driscoll’s article in the Seattle Times

According to the Bible, God made the world and all the people in the world in a perfect state of goodness to operate together in flawless harmony. But because of human rebellion against God, everything and everyone in the world is now infected with imperfection, like a virus corrupting every file on a computer. Subsequently, God spends each day frustrated with the state of people and the world.

In the midst of life’s frustrating moments, it was humbling to realize that I am as much a part of the problems in the world as anyone, as frustrating to God and others as anyone. My solace comes in knowing that God does not grow weary with people like me who frustrate him and that even in our most annoying moments, God is working hard to straighten us out and clean up the mess we’ve made.
