Recently, tadalafil search I picked up the New Living Translation, cialis which is totally not normal for me, troche but I wanted a “different perspective and something fresh”. I’ve always been a King James only girl, even before going to a very conservative fundamental Baptist college. It was to the point that everyone would joke about it because I preferred it over all the others. One of my best friends even laughed when I mentioned to him that I decided that I would do my reading out of the NLT because “pigs are flying or something”. He replied: “‘We all stand on the KJV, the KJV, the KJV.’ Just stay away from the Message because you will get mad!” He knows me well.
I was doing my daily Bible reading this morning out of the NLT — finishing up Hebrews and starting James — and I was hit hard by the last few verses in that first chapter of James.
19) Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.
26) If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.
I’ve been having a very hard time with this for the past few months, not so much with other people, but when you have a little person living with you who is still learning how to properly handle emotions… it gets tough. Anger and tantrums are everywhere. I’m finding that sometimes this adult deals with her own anger and tantrums.
I’ve been easily angered and annoyed with my son. I’ve cut him off while he was speaking because my words were “more important”. I have not been listening to him as I should. I’ve had issues controlling my tongue around him, saying possibly mean and hurtful things. I have provoked my child to wrath which is not what Eph. 6:4 says to do. The following is sarcasm: I really do deserve the mother of the year award.
It’s really interesting how people, including myself, try to use the Bible as a guide book for living our lives with others– our neighbors. But we never really stop to think that maybe our “neighbors” could include our children.
Neylan is learning and growing up seeing the way that I act and react. If I’m not treating my child like I should be treating other human beings, I’m doing a GREAT DISSERVICE to my child and to the world I send him out into.
Would you say that word or phrase to another human being? Don’t say it to your child.
Would you interrupt another human being? Don’t interrupt your child while he’s talking.
Would you break a promise to another human being? Don’t break one you made to your child.
It’s a simple concept when you think about about it, but putting it into practice is sometimes harder than we want to think.
Keep it positive and be a Christian to your child also.
