Last Sunday, when the Packers lost their first game of the season to the Chiefs, I was really bummed, and grumbled all over the house, My son, Ryan, brought some perspective to the situation when he informed me the Colts had just won their first game of the season on the same day. “The Packers are 13 and 1 and the Colts are 1 and 13,” Ryan noted, “And I wonder what’s going on in their locker rooms right now?” I imagined the Packers slumping to the lockers under a gloomy cloud of disappointment and discouragement. Meanwhile, I pictured the Colts cheering in wild jubilation and slapping each other on the back. Then Ryan said, “But despite how they’re feeling today, the fact is the Packers are still 13 and 1 – and on top of the league, while the Colts, at 1 and 13, are still in the basement.” And I needed to hear that. Sometimes, like the Packers, We end up getting beat by perplexing problems. When life takes a negative turn, we tend to sag in discouragement.
