Bruised Apple

The other day, when I grab an apple from the fridge, I notice that part of the apple is bruised.

But rather than throw the whole apple away, I grab a knife, cut the bruised part off, and then eat the rest of the apple.

Instead of focusing on the bruised part, I focus on the good part.

Even though you may have some bruised parts in your life—some areas of hurt or disappointment—don’t throw the whole thing away.

Don’t focus just on the bruised parts. But focus also on the good parts—the things that are working, the blessings you do have. Count your blessings and give God thanks.
