Have You Found The Right Hat?
The picture above is of me wearing my latest Tennessee hat. As you can see I look pretty darn cool.
I get two or three of these every year. They always feel and look good when I am trying them on. The problem is that once I have them for a little bit, I find some flaw in them. Either it fits a bit too tight on the back of my head or the bill is too short, too long or I can’t get it bend just right.
Do you know what happens next?
I’m on the search for another hat.
I have perfectly good hats left behind in the dust of searching for a better hat.
In other words, I’m not content with my hat. I’m not satisfied.
That may be fine with hats, but it becomes a problem if it seeps into every other part of my life.
We can get to the point where we allow the minor imperfections in relationships become major. We search for better relationships. What we end up finding are other relationships that have other imperfections.
It could be a church. Something minor becomes major. You’re on the search for a new church.
I’m not saying that you may not have to end some relationships. I’m not saying that there aren’t times you may have to search for a new church.
I’m just saying that you don’t have to always be looking for better ones. You may have problems with the ones you have. The “better” ones will have their own issues, problems and imperfections.
The next hat won’t be perfect.
There’s no such thing.
What “hat” are you searching for?
