A reminder for today
And "don't sin by letting anger control you." Don't let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.(Ephesians 4:26-27)
Anger, anger is one of the easiest ways the devil can get a grip in your life and one that he can use over and over again. To think of it anger is such a waste of energy. You get angry and in most cases you cannot change it. You see it in traffic as people get angry at other and you see it at work when people’s opinions differ from each other and you see it at home when loved ones get upset at each other. Then you shout and fight and in the end you break more than what you fix. This is something I struggled with for a long time and from time to time I still get very upset. At then end I always realize that it was just the wrong way of doing it and a calmer approach would have been much more successful. In most cases we get angry because we see only our side and everything is all about our discomfort and loss. Our time was wasted and our idea was better and our space was used. Me me me and me. We never take a moment to love first and fight last. We always fight first and then we try and fix it by love.
This is a little bit like trying to build a house by putting up the roof first. It just does not work. But it is not your fault, because that is how this world teach it to us. This is the norm and this how everyone else does it. We see it in our colleagues and we even see it on TV. What is your fault is that you know Jesus did it differently and yet you follow the world.
So today I want you to try and put yourself second and take a moment to think before you act.
Lord, I pray that you will give us wisdom to do life looking at your example and not this world. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
