Daily Meditations: Sweet Or Bitter

I witnessed something interesting lately, I had asked someone to buy oranges from the market and he bought two baskets from different vendors. I was home when he brought them and I went out but when I returned, all the oranges in one basket were gone while the other basket was untouched except for one missing orange. I asked the people in my home why this was the case and they told me that the oranges in the basket that was empty was sweet while the other basket had sour oranges. And then it hit me.

When you have a sweet attitude, you will attract many friends and well wishers and at the end of your life you would have emptied out what God put in you and be fulfilled. But when your attitude is sour or people will avoid you and at the end of your life you will still be full of all the things God put in you which were meant to be shared with others and you will be bitter. Those oranges had no choice on how they would taste, but you have a choice on what attitude you radiate.

“Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?”-James 3:11.
