Circle of Trust: Don’t be easily offended.
Anger is my jester. Anger leads to broken relationships and unnecessary conflict. It is not a productive emotion. Our Ms are not attracted to anger. Our Ms are attracted to our actions. In today’s environment, too many people are easily offended. So many people have smoldering anger.
For years, I was angry at my father. It kept us separated. Thankfully, we reconciled when I got over my anger. My prayer for the PAX is that you don’t let your anger separate you from people who matter most. Don’t let your anger ruin your day. It is up to us to manage that emotion. F3 has taught me the importance of grace and understanding. Let’s take that out into the world.
Grace & Peace, Wait Time
