We must be aware that society's goal is to tear YOU down to build themselves up. Few people have the genuine desire to make others better. A popular phrase among the youth is calling someone a 'try hard". It is an insult, meant to say, "You are trying too hard and you still aren't good" or "You try hard but are failing at it". Calling someone a "try hard" is trendy and helps tear others down and make us feel better. The problem is that it puts the importance on NOT TRYING or simply focusing on the result and succeeding or being good instead of the emphasis on effort. We all need to TRY HARDER. We all need to look at our own effort level, while at the same time encourage those who are at least trying, despite the result.
Lord, I want to try harder and I want to try harder for You.
