Galatians 6:10 (TLB)
10 “That’s why whenever we can we should always be kind to everyone, and especially to our Christian brothers.”
I am one of those people who carry my heart on my sleeve, and if someone hurts or offends me, I show it. When I am hurt, I will either get revenge and get them back or avoid them. This process has been part of my life for a very long time; until my husband said to me to drop it. Life is complicated enough and stops being so childish. I was furious when he said that because I was dealing with the people in my way. The funny thing is the Holy Spirit works through many people, even your husband. I was reading this book and the person reminded me to pray about it, give the problem to God and leaves it with God. I still have some fits, I am still human, but I also was reminded that I would give an account one day to God about my bad behaviour. Let me encourage you to pray about the situation and Be Kind to everyone. It takes practice, but in time you will be able to be kind even to those who hurt you.
Lord, as I read Your word today, please help me in letting go and trusting You. Lord, please teach us to be kind to everyone, and especially to our Christian brothers. In the Holy Name of Jesus, Amen
