A glass half empty. Sound familiar? I’m like that. It’s not that I don’t hope for the best. I do. But I want to be ready for the curveballs in life. I’m pretty sure it’s a control issue. For many of us ‘glass half empty’ people, we tend to be self-deprecating, and insecure. We don’t view ourselves too positively. As kids, it can lead to depression, feelings of failure, and a person who has a difficult time being motivated. How should we help our half empty kids? Remind them of what Paul tells us in Ephesians 2. As followers of Christ we are God’s masterpiece. Jesus himself said He loves Christ-followers as much as God loves Jesus. Think of that? Speaking that Truth is love.
