I was watching a movie called, “Saving Mr. Banks,” last night. The movie is about the author of “Mary Poppins,” and the process of Walt Disney making that story into a film.
At first, I assumed that P.L. Travers (the author of the book) was just being difficult and had really strong opinions about the way she wanted things done. Then I realized that the scenes that she was most insistent about were those that triggered unsealed childhood memories. Fortunately
for us, Walt Disney found a way to relieve her fears so we could all enjoy that Walt Disney Classic.
Instead of assuming that people we encounter are just being difficult, we need to remember that there is always something behind it, both in our lives and in theirs. “Matthew 7:3-5 reminds us to “take the plank out of our own eye before removing the speck of dust in our brother’s eye (paraphrased).”
Many ties I blow things way out of proportion, so I found it helpful to ask myself, ” what is it about this person that is triggering such a strong response in me?” God is very faithful to bring healing and health to each area of our hearts that we bring to Him.
