From Pastor Roger…I saw a quote the other day. It said:
“Men are like steel. When they lose their temper, they lose their worth.”
This reminds me of this scripture: 1 Peter 3:8–9 (NIV): 8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
Anger just isn’t worth it. As a people, we need to let go of our anger about the election. We need to let go of our anger about Trump or Biden, Democrats or Republicans. We need to let go of our anger for COVID restrictions. We need to let go of our anger for our family issues. Let it go, it’s not worth it.
“Let us seek a new conversion. We need the presence of the Holy Spirit of God with us, that our hearts may be softened and that we may not bring a harsh spirit into the work. I pray that the Holy Spirit may take full possession of our hearts. Let us act like children of God who are looking to Him for counsel, ready to work out His plans wherever presented. God will be glorified by such a people, and those who witness our zeal will say: Amen and amen.” Maranatha, The Lord is Coming (p. 312). October 31
I love being your pastor – and I am praying for you!
Have an Awesome Day!
