Mother Teresa said "Work without love is slavery." How often I make myself a martyr by my own poor attitude! I find myself grumbling at times over situations that are entirely of my own creation.
Perhaps it is my lack of planning or dealing with the results of poor child training. Often it is because I have become absorbed in my own thoughts and missed opportunities to turn events of the day into learning moments.
Father change my heart and make the daily tasks of my life and outpouring of your love into the people in my life. Help me to see beyond my own pain to ease the pain of others. I don't want to be a self made slave but a bondservant to Jesus.
