Why only read the emails that are fun?

Sam Horn’s recent post on LinkedIn last week.


We’ve heard the phrase, God wastes nothing. What does that mean exactly?

For starters it means everything that happens – good or not so good – is meant to help us:

  • Grow
  • Learn

Whether we grow or learn is 100% our responsibility.

Bad things happen to everyone.

No one likes reading an overflowing inbox. And add to that having to deal with tough emails that are difficult, time consuming, or tragic. Good grief Charlie Brown.

Every single thing that happens to us can teach us or grow us.

But if we looked at it that way, we’d have nothing to complain about.

God wastes nothing.

  1. Jeff,

    When I think about the concept of God wasting nothing, I am reminded of the Bible verse Romans 8:28, that says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” It never said all things would BE good, but that it work together FOR good. It may not seem beneficial at the time, and sometimes we may not see the “why” in things. But God will get the good out of it.


  2. Bob, what a simple, yet crystal clear, explanation of be and for. That makes all the difference in how it makes perfect sense.
