Being like Jesus involves this, too: do you ever get disappointed in anybody? Has anybody ever let you down and it affected you? I wonder today how much of God’s work would cease if we removed human reaction to it. How much singing would go on if we didn’t have the crutch of human appreciation? I get disappointed in people. I used to work in Sunday school with teachers; and I would think finally I had brought a staff of workers to a point that they understood the wondrous privilege of being co-creator with God of His nature in man. Then, like that! They would let me down on a crucial day. I have worked with associates and with helpers; I have relied on friends; I have had those closest to me undercut my hopes and desires. I am sure I have done it to others, too.
