One night the sergeant, who had little use for anything religious or Christian, threw his very muddy boots at the boy, striking him on the side of the head.
The next morning the sergeant found his boots beside his bed all clean and polished to perfection.
He was so impressed by the actions of the young man that he was eventually reached for the Lord. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God."
Here's the moral of the story...
In life we sometimes experience unpleasant things we do not deserve. Events that we cannot control but what we can control is our reaction.
You can be bitter or better. You can hate or love.
Regardless of the situation, keep your faith in God and remain at peace with Him. Meditating your memory verse throughout the day is a good habit to keep your eyes and heart focused on God.
