Love vs. Anger

12 Nov

What ever happened to working issues out peacefully within the Body of Christ? Paul wrote VOLUMES about this. Jesus taught that the measure of forgiveness we use on others will be the measure used on us. If we cannot forgive… If we cannot have mercy… Then I wonder how much mercy we will receive?

Just like the Children of Israel, we at times can be as peaceful and loving as anyone and then something happens. It could be anything really…. A fuse trips and its on!! Sometimes it is truly warranted. Sometimes it is not.

Conflict is never easy. But as long as people are different, it is inevitable. And I’ve watched this time and time again: When you approach conflict as the New Testament teaches, it will always pay off for you. When you try your best to remain in God’s will, even in conflict, He will reward you.

Test and see that God is true to those who live for Him!!

    Slow to speak, slow to anger and quick to listen.

    I’ve learned a lot by striving to live out this Truth. Anger rarely gets you anywhere except further in a pit of despair.

    Thanks for these words!

    Thank you for the reminder! And for these words. We must lavish others with the grace and mercy that has been lavished on us.
