Hi there all readers and welcome! We are on the 14th of 30 Waterproof Principles;
Truth Principles to keep the roof and other nagging house leaks from ruining good character and good work already built into your life.
This particular Principle is yet a sensitive subject. Not one I have yet mastered, but by the Grace of God, and with God all things are possible. One can compare it to smoking cigarettes: Nothing good comes from it! (Somewhere along the line your body will start to display the consequences of your actions) There is no good outcome to the wrong response; a Gentle response defuses anger, a sharp tongue doesn't.
It is quite simple but not that simple in practice. When you're all charged up, maybe late for work, under financial stress, and things are not quite going the way you planned...
Unfortunately, the ones who get hurt are usually those closest to you.
Husband, wife, children ...
It is a killer of life and all things good.
The good news and the bad news is ... We can't fix ourselves. But we sure can take responsibility for our actions and submit it to God. Where we end, He begins. He is strong in our weakness. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me..." Don't say, "it's in the family, my grandfather had this terrible temper", God wants more for you.
"So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4
In Jesus you have the Victory.
Short and Sweet
