What Do You Expect?

How often we let our preconceptions color, distort, and limit our experience! This prevents us from making the most of our opportunities. We tend to label people and places mentally, then watch them live up to our preconceptions. Very likely we see in them just what we had expected.

Paul had a much better approach: "The earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God." Rom. 8:19; Such "earnest expectation" is a form of prayer. It lifts human thought above its own preconceptions to glimpse something of the true spiritual nature of the children of God, the ideas of Principle.
