What I read today;
James 3-4; John 8-9; Amos 9 & Obadiah; Proverbs 11; Ecclesiastes 1; Deuteronomy 14
Some mornings I really get cut all the way to the bone with what I read. This morning is one of those days.
Recently, I had one of those really stressful days. We were doing an operation that was high risk and high stress. During the operation, an individual from a far away office was asking questions that were taking me away from watching the people doing the work. After a while of trying to deal with the remote person and the job at hand, I did what most people would do. I got angry and said some things I shouldn’t have said.
I’d like to say it was an unusual event, but anger is a problem I struggle with and have for most of my life.
And then I read James chapter 3. Ouch. Gut Punch Time. But I guess that’s what scripture is for, isn’t it? It keeps working on us, and if we take it to heart, it points us to our need for a savior and shows us grace for the many times a day that we blow it.
