Public Service Announcement

Random thought for the day: You do not have "anger issues"; you have MATURITY ISSUES! It's time to grow up and realize that it's not all about you and what you want. Your rights end where another person's begin!

We need to stop making excuses for our bad behavior. It's not just "stating our opinion" or "saying what we think." No one "made you do it." The devil didn't hold a gun to your head and "make you lose your temper" or say unkind, cutting words about others. YOU did that. Own it. Admit it. Grow up.

We need to realize, our words have power - power to hurt or to heal. 

It's time to stop and realize, there are things worth being angry about and "this" probably isn't one of them.

This has been a public service announcement. That is all.

Luke 6:31-34

The Message (MSG)
"Here is a simple rule of thumb for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you; then grab the initiative and do it for them! If you only love the lovable, do you expect a pat on the back? Run-of-the-mill sinners do that. If you only help those who help you, do you expect a medal? Garden-variety sinners do that. If you only give for what you hope to get out of it, do you think that's charity? The stingiest of pawnbrokers does that.

Hebrews 5:11-14

The Message (MSG)
 11-14I have a lot more to say about this, but it is hard to get it across to you since you've picked up this bad habit of not listening. By this time you ought to be teachers yourselves, yet here I find you need someone to sit down with you and go over the basics on God again, starting from square one—baby's milk, when you should have been on solid food long ago! Milk is for beginners, inexperienced in God's ways; solid food is for the mature, who have some practice in telling right from wrong.
