A Revolution of Blessing –Patience and not Anger - Thursday, November 7th

A Revolution of Blessing –Patience and not Anger - Thursday, November 7th

Wherever you go, stay in the same house until you leave town. And if a town refuses to welcome you, shake its dust from your feet as you leave to show that you have abandoned those people to their fate.” Luke 9:4-5

But the people of the village did not welcome Jesus because he was on his way to Jerusalem. When James and John saw this, they said to Jesus, “Lord, should we call down fire from heaven to burn them up?” But Jesus turned and rebuked them. Luke 9:53-55

But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices …. So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity Colossians 3:8-9, 12-14

This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. James 1:19-20

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Quite a leap from shaking the dust from your feet to calling down fire from heaven. We can all relate to the feelings of indignation that can so easily spring up with in us and push us in directions that are so opposite to what God really has in mind. Sometimes people are just not ready for us and we need to move on to others who need the blessing of love we can bring to them. God will show us the way in this and you can be certain that indignation will not be a part of what He has in mind.

The bond of unity is the product of love. Love is the king piece of all the other qualities of a “blesser” mentioned above. And being a “blesser” lies at the heart of what it means to be “chosen of God.” In contrast are the characteristics of a “curser”. How often our anger is the driving force in how we relate to others even when we have the motivation of wanting to promote righteousness on behalf of God and for the good of others. We might not recognize this as “curser” behavior but it is. Truly the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, how easily I become indignant and angry with the people in my world. I know that love is patient and that I have much to learn about bringing the blessing of love to others by being patient with them. Forgive me for trying to do your work in my way. I choose to yield to you for your work of transforming me into a loving and patient “blesser.” Amen!
