About a month ago, I was watching a movie with my 4 year old nephew. Ten minutes into the movie he asked who the bad guys were.
Doing my best not to ruin the movie for him, I told him to keep watching and it would be obvious. Five minutes later he asked again.
He likes to know the scary parts up front. He wants to know the end from the beginning or at the very least, whose bad (said like MJ).
Sometimes there’s comfort in expecting bad and realizing it. It’s manifestation, but the wrong kind.
Everyone is going to make a mistake at some point and some folks are truly bad for your health. You’ll find the bad in anyone or anything if you look long enough. No one is perfect and you generally find what you’re looking for. But if that’s where you put your energy, that’s what you’ll get – bad guys.
He’s 4 so he gets a pass, but don’t spend all of your time looking for the bad guys/gals.
Instead, look for the good in those around you and when the time is right, God will show you what you need to see. Expecting the worst is exhausting. Free yourself.
