unfamiliar land

While my neighbor reworks my computer, I use a spare. The keyboard has a calculator button where the control key SHOULD be. Arghhh – so much for shortcuts.

Makes me want to say, “Who approved this design?”

What about our expectations and comparisons of people?

Every person is different AND has value.

We could complain about the Designer but we are ALL made in His image. Old models and new. Each with different features and buttons…and we don’t always know them until they are discovered, whether deliberately or accidentally.

Some people are much harder to learn. We still need to celebrate their good points.

“At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

    A very clever comparison! I also have a spare computer. I think people are the same way: we should not expect one person to satisfy all our needs all the time. It is humanly impossible and we will begin to criticize them and lose sight of their good qualities. It is advantageous, to us and to them, to have different people to turn to for friendship–because each person is unique and has different features, qualities, sins, gifts.

    • The mixed thoughts of the moment Melanie. I think of God’s words…our thoughts are not His – neither are they another person’s. It’s all about love and grace.

    I have 3 computers I use every day. All three of the keyboards are different. I’m constantly hitting the wrong keys. Keeps us on our toes!

  3. Oh yes, Judi, some people are so much harder to learn. Given the option, we often opt out. Thank you for the encouragement to celebrate their good points!
