This morning I caught a flat tire. Not randomtaztic at all. However, I began to think about that situation in a different perspective, what if that had been my life-in a hard trial aspect?
I was not expecting to get a flat tire today-that is the same with life. We don’t expect our love ones to die suddenly. We don’t expect to get an illness. Or whatever hardship may come our way; nor are the majority of us ready to face the obstacle once it hits us. But as humans we learn to cope with the unexpected and somehow work our way through the situation.
However, what if we are not equipped to deal with the situation? What if I didn’t have the finances to cover the flat tire? I would’ve had to take a more difficult route to solve the problem, because I was not prepared.
I once heard someone say, that it’s better to be prepared for the tests of life instead of trying to cram at the last minute. The test could be your attitude, a relationship, or whatever. If you don’t have enough resources already deposited in you, you set yourself up for failure.
Oh sure you may have a day where you can easily overcome that situation. However, there will be a time where it won’t be so easy and you will have to test your inner knowledge. If you aren’t prepared…who knows what will happen?
Don’t let a flat tire sneak up on you too, be prepared for whatever situation that may come your way. The unexpected is what will truly test your character.
Never be unequipped.
