Before you cross that bridge

“On the margin of safety: which means, don’t try and drive a 9,800-pound truck over a bridge that says it’s capacity is 10,000 pounds. But go down the road a little bit and find one that says, capacity 15,000 pounds.” _Warren Buffett

*****

I feel sorry for people who do not believe in original sin. They have no margin for error. They’re constantly expecting perfection or at least for things to always be getting better and better everyday in everyway and they have little patience with those who fail them.

But when you come to peace with the reality that we are living in a broken world filled with broken people you can then start planning on margin–it’s called: forgiveness, mercy, long-suffering, patience, and grace.

The ONE THING for today:

The lower your expectations of others the greater the potential for a happy day.
