We all know that we tend to say rubbish, when we are fuming with anger and full of emotions. Emotions have no logic and must be ruled and disciplined by the mind and will.
When we are angry, it is better for us to be silent and say nothing, because we will most likely say wrong things, and things that we will later live to regret, and maybe never be able to erase from the other persons mind.
Words have broken up marriages and great relationships. There are some words, that some people never forget when you say them to them. They may forgive you, but those words linger and inhabit their souls, and remembering those words torment, torture and cause them pain until the Lord heals their minds. We just need to be careful with words, especially when we are angry.
Words can be very harmful, hurtful and damaging. Once spoken, it is difficult to reverse them or take them back. It is better for us to form a habit of processing our anger.
When you are angry, take time to process and work through your anger, and get your points streamlined and organized. Then, later talk calmly to the person who is the source of the anger, and articulately communicate and resolve the conflict. However, never ignore the conflict.
By all this we are encouraged. In addition to our own encouragement, we were especially delighted to see how happy Titus was, because his spirit has been refreshed by all of you. 2 Corinthians 7:13
God has given us power as humans to be able to refresh other human spirits. In this Scripture, Titus’s spirit was refreshed by the good actions of those around him, and those he ministered to.
Let us try to always be positive, and good towards one another, so as to give them joy, encouragement comfort and happiness. We must not deplete others or drain their spirits.
Constant negativity and bad attitude depletes people around you and nobody wants to be around a negative, judgmental, critical person. Attitude matters a lot, so let us constantly develop ourselves to have healthy positive attitude and mindset.
May we live to refresh other people’s spirits instead of dampen, drain and deplete them. That is a critical way to fulfill God’s commandment to love one another.
May great grace be upon us in Jesus name. May grace, mercy and peace be ours, in full measure.
