Oh, if we could all have this in our daily lives. Some captions convict me more than others and this one hits home.
Exodus 10:20 ''But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let the Israelites go.'' We do not want to be arrogant and say we will follow the Lord's will and then turn back to our self desires. Are we repeat offenders like Pharoah? I think often so and then we have to deal with the consequences. May our hearts never harden so that we can't hear God's voice in our ear and ignore His will.
Okay, here is the hardest of the three to me. I don't really have a short temper but often too quick of a reaction. I try to remember how patient God is with me, when I'm about to blow a fuse but it's not a no-fail system. May we always give more grace than is needed.
I watched a movie the other day where the guy was in big trouble with his job and said he said, 'I just hafta hit something.... so he hit the chair.' We should never take our anger out on anyone physically or emotionally. May your touch be soft as a feather and we will never cause harm.
