“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.” James 3:13
Dear Jesus, It is easy for me to get angry when I think I have a better idea than my family or coworkers and they just don’t recognize it. The more that time passes the more I am tempted to believe they are so foolish and hardhearted. But actually I see from this passage that sometimes I am the hardhearted, one. I am hardhearted to think that I can stew in anger and a surly spirit just because they do not see things my way. Help me Jesus. Help me to be peaceful and full of good deeds toward those who disagree with me while I wait for them to see it my way. And if I am seeing things wrongly, open my eyes to see it. Open my heart to accept the fact that I have been wrong and give me the strength to freely admit that I have ben mistaken. Amen.
He is wise who actively loves him who is a fool without frustration.
