When I was a kid, if a bad driver cut my dad off in traffic, he’d say something like, “I hope that guy pulls closer because I wanna see what a real MORON looks like!”
If he got REALLY angry, then he’d follow the guy and confront him. He’d walk up to the car window and proceed to argue with them until they threatened to call the cops.
That’s when my dad would pull out his badge. “You wanna call a cop? Here I am!”
Road rage is NOT a healthy way to react for anyone!
That same anger got passed down from my grandpa to my dad, and then on to me. This is why the renewing of our minds through the Word is so important. It’s the only way to BREAK those destructive generational cycles.
Sometimes, I catch myself having one of those negative knee-jerk reactions. I say things I don’t mean and I say mean things. When your heart is overwhelmed then it’s your circumstances that control your life.
Respond according to THE WORD, not according to the world. And don’t allow a temporary emotional overload to “trip your trigger”!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
