A Mouthful for Dealing with RUDENESS that Bites and Hurts
part 1 of 3; dealing with rudeness
2 minute read
I believe it stems from thought life,
or absence of training,
or yielding to self,
Certainly rudeness, on God, we can't blame,
Motivation central to heart,
Rude annoying comments,
Meant to insult,
inform or change?
Do you think it's becoming?
Do you think it shows love?
Maybe you shouldn't say it.
If in word or action, or lack there-of
How should we deal
Not re-pay rude for rude
or mean for mean
In YOU, for Christ's sake,
His light should be seen
Let your overflowing cup
Spill over in thirst quenching
Refreshment from your blessings
2.My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations
3.Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4.But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
27) Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
What a wonderful mouth full those scriptures are !! And do you, like me, find them just what you need at the thought of dealing with rude comments?
Let's face it, RUDE can be on purpose or on accident. If it is not intended to build up or express kindness, gentleness, LOVE or good manners, and instead it offends or annoys, IT'S PROBABLY RUDE !
It happens now and then, and we have to deal with it, on the receiving end sometimes, somehow, either actively or passively.
May the Holy Spirit be our guide and our teacher, that WE are NOT RUDE back !
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Personally I am gonna rest in this.
I am wishing YOU, peace in the Sonshine. Thanks for visiting. More short reads on this soon.
