'My dearest brothers and sisters, take this to heart: Be quick to listen, but slow to speak. And be slow to become angry, for human anger is never a legitimate tool to promote God’s righteous purpose. So this is why we abandon everything morally impure and all forms of wicked conduct. Instead, with a sensitive spirit we absorb God’s Word, which has been implanted within our nature, for the Word of Life has power to continually deliver us.' James 1:19-21 The Passion Translation
We tend to react to things pretty quickly. Some responses are preloaded, ready to be deployed instantaneously the moment they are required. This is especially true if it is something that makes us uncomfortable. We push back against the thing that is causing the discomfort. What if that thing or person that is causing the discomfort is actually for our benefit?
We have had to do many things this year that were not comfortable, but they were still for our benefit, even if we didn't think so. I want to encourage you to not be so quick to react but to pause and ask God what is the purpose of this thing in my life, how should I respond to it?
Much Love & God bless
