You know what ill temper does?

THE.INFALLIBILITY.OF.GOD’S.SPOKEN.WORD_  CHICAGO.IL  WEDNESDAY_  56-0404
E-4    You know, I–I was telling the boys awhile ago coming over, I said about how we must be happy all the time. God don’t want you to be sad. You know what ill temper does? And that old temper, that’s one of the awfullest old things. And it–it’s about sixty percent of the cause of all sickness is temper. Yes, sir, them tam–tantrums you fly loose, remember, you just developing a cancer, ulcer, or something like, when you do it. When you get all stewed up about somebody, “I won’t go back there any more. Wait till I give them a piece of my mind.” All right. Remember, you’re the one’s going to pay for it. Just keep happy.

Forgiveness

To forgive is to set the prisoner free, only to realize the prisoner was you.
What a powerful thought! I found myself sharing this with others this week, thus I thought I would share it with you. We are acquainted with Peter’s encounter with Jesus in Matthew 18:21-22. He wanted to know how often should he forgive his brother. Peter seemed to already have an answer in mind in which he thought Jesus would agree. What a shock it must have been to realize that his thoughts were not God’s thoughts, when considering forgiveness. Consider the following definition and scripture regarding forgiveness.
Forgive means to stop feeling angry or resentful toward someone for an offense, flaw, or mistake.

LUKE 17:3-4

3    Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4    And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Proving Ground

Judges3:4 – And THEY were to PROVE Israel by them to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the Lord which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.

Israel had test to see if they would stay with God’s word. Your test is your PROVING GROUND. Make God Proud in your TEST.

Keep Going Saints.

The Lord is not slack

II PETER 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

God is not slack. If He said it I believe it and that settles it.

Keep going saints. Amen
