We all have a tendency to judge others based on what we think they deserve. Maybe you’ve tried to do things the right way, but those who had no regard for the right way seemed to be rewarded.

In order to discover true peace, we need to shift our focus from others to ourselves and rest in the relationship we have with the Father.
