You can worry about everything, but the problem is worry keeps you from enjoying what you have. You can never fully enjoy all the good things in your life when you're preoccupied with gloom and doom.
If you have thick skin, you’re quick to forgive. If you’re thin skinned, you’re more likely to hang on to grudges and hurts.
The perfect combination? A soft heart and thick skin.
When Ned refuses to part with an autographed baseball C.J. wants, C.J.'s envy threatens to get the better of him. With the help of Mr. Collins' cylinder player, C.J. hears the story of King Ahab and Naboth's Vineyard, and discovers how destructive envy can be.
Countless small-hearted people keep score, hold grudges, and look down on others with critical, envious eyes. They manipulate and control people. Sadly, in our fallen world, small-hearted people are the norm, making the few genuinely great-hearted people stand out all the more. They look beyond the past, sacrifice for others, and overflow with humility. All the while, they shun the limelight and give God alone the glory. Among their thin ranks stands Abram, who not only gave his short-sighted nephew the choicest land but also rescued him when his choice got him into trouble!
