Check yourself.

The Christ life requires that we discipline ourselves. 

The end result is that we will walk with Jesus.

Be kind.

Respond softly and deescalate harsh situations.

He loves us so much He died for us. 

I, you, we, want to become Christ like.

It’s simple, as I focus on Jesus I learn to love.

I learn how to love. 

Love one another.

Choose your wife wisely.

Life is miserable with the wrong person. 

Ask the Lord to bring you the right person.

If you choose unwisely, ask the Father to help you grow. 

Don’t stop, change wisely. 

APR. 10 – PROV. 10:19

04/10            Proverbs 10:19

04/09            Proverbs 10:11

11 The words of the godly are a life-giving fountain;

Speak words of anger and hate.

These are words of death. 

APR. 8 – JAMES 1:19-20

04/08            James 1:19-20

19 Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. 20 Human anger[a] does not produce the righteousness[b] God desires.


Life is quick.

It is unnerving.

Help often seems far away.

We are too often offended.

Slow down.

Think through the issue.

Give others the benefit of the doubt. 

Hold your anger, love one another. 

When you are angry you are almost always wrong.  

There is no room for selfishness in the kingdom. 

Being angry is selfish.
