I don’t know how many times I’ve been guilty of this one… but I’m sure it’s a ton! I get on my knees in prayer, acting all humble and prideless before the Throne of God… I’m sure most of you know the deal. Then not two minutes later, I freak out because I feel someone hasn’t paid me the proper amount of respect (replace someone with “my wife or kids” if you like). What a wretched creature I can be! I’m sure my Heavenly Father is not amused by my stupidity. As a matter of fact, He says I’m a fool!
“A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.” Prov 12:16
“Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Prov 12:18
Please forgive me Father! After everything you’ve given me, after everything you’ve done, still I sin! Still I take You, and what You’ve given me for granted! I am truly sorry! Help me, Father…. help me to love like You do!
