The message at my church this morning likened life to a card game.  If you were dealt some cards that would guarantee you a losing hand, you would discard them.  These cards might be resentment, failure, insecurity, fear, anger, or anything that hurts you (or someone else) or keeps you from being your best self.  Often we hold onto those “bad cards” and can’t figure out why we aren’t winning.  When we draw new cards, we can improve our hand and increase our chances of winning.  In life, unlike a card game, we can discard as many “bad cards” as we wish and keep drawing until we get the exact hand we want.  So go ahead and discard.
