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 curve balls of 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. And 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.
