If I had a penny for every time someone said to me: “You don’t know my circumstances,” I would be able to pay for my dream trip to Bora Bora.
When people say that to me my usual response is: “You know. . .you’re right. . and I don’t want to know your circumstances.”
Dictionary.com defines circumstances as:
“a condition, detail, part, or attribute, with respect to time, place, manner, agent, etc., that accompanies, determines, or modifies a fact or event; a modifying or influencing factor”
Spiritually speaking. . .I define circumstance as the circle you’re standing in.
We shouldn’t be standing still. . .we should be moving from glory unto glory (2 Corinthians 3:18).
In which case, we would be leaving our circumstances behind.
So for me. . .the question is why do I want to hear about what this person ought to be leaving behind.
