Unmet expectations lead to sin

We’ve all had it where we want something, but God doesn’t give it to us. Our expectations are not met – someone let us down. We are disappointed and we lash out in anger at them. Or, maybe we think we’ve lived a hard life of self-denial and God owes us some reward, but it doesn’t seem to come. So we carry around a burden of being disappointed, even with God. But the real problem is wanting what we think He owes us. This is a recipe for anger, disillusionment, and apostasy. The solution is humble confession, seeing yourself as a sinner, and knowing God’s grace.
