How do you discern what is the right thing to do, or not to do?
I often have the most trouble with this quandary when I feel that I have been "wronged," or "mistreated" by someone.
My initial reaction is to say "The Hell with you," and separate myself from them and anything they are connected with.
As you can imagine, in a ministry, or a service profession, you probably don't want to throw away all of your work, just because you get mad.
I recently had a situation where I was let down, angered, and upset by an individual. My wife and I took the comments personally
It sure is a weird phenomenon, when you get upset with someone, that anger can continue to grow if you don't catch yourself.
It becomes easier and easier to see the other person's negative qualities the more you look.
However, then grace appears.
You know, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water" concept.
It is "To follow the peace."
The tranquil type of peace.
Believe it or not, those difficult experiences are actually gifts from God.
Another life lesson in my world........
