KEEP YOUR COOL


Are you able to keep your cool and be calm no matter what or do you feel yourself getting mad and wanting to lash back at a person who has insulted you or hurt you with words or actions?

God's word clearly states in Proverbs 15:1(NIV) 'A soft answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger.' Ponder that verse for a few moments about what it is saying. How do its' words speak to you?
 
Today is "Black Friday" in America. This day may cause people to say words they regret later or that could get them into trouble. Shoppers intent upon securing a high dollar electronic item or a special toy at an extremely cheap price, will at times camp out over night and then rush the store once the doors open at O Dark Thirty. Silly Americans! There have been people killed and seriously hurt when shoppers trampled them. You have to ask yourself how important a material item is to nearly get killed trying to buy it. Is that what Christmas is all about?

Shopping would be an excellent time to test your skills of love, peace, patience and kindness. No matter what you are doing, be it shopping, eating out, or visiting friends, let your life shine brightly for Jesus.


PRAYER: Lord I want to be kind and treat all people with love and kindness whether or not they return the kindness to me. Help my life be a witness for you in my home or out in the world I am in. In Jesus' name. Amen.
