Now before I got up from bed this morning, I noticed something wrong, and I really did not want to get up and face the day!!! I then braced myself to pray and just take a cup of hot coffee or maybe tea for you and just meditate on something: How life had made us bitter!!! We just don't want to tango anymore with this life!!! And we just plainly just don't want to lift and bring up the issue, we don't want to talk about it, and we only want to say and talk the bare necesity to bring throught the day!!!...
Let to turn to bible and see what God shows us from where we have fallen!!! 1Corinthians 13:1-13,
["...1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity..."]
And we might think, this is not affecting me!!! But the truth of the matter is that a hard, bitter heart can ruin a deal, the day and even your life!!! We must understand that the offenses come from all directions: Traffic, Job, Family, Freind, Coworker and we just plain begin to believe that someone or life is out to get us and do us wrong!!! But the fact of the matter for your coffee is that is we realize how offenses make us bitter and ruin our heart, then we know we can look out when they come and take them calmly, patiently...
Just list about now how you feel and how someone or something has already made you, me upset!!! See that things don't have to be this way and we can escape this frenzy of hate and bad feelings!!! I you come to see that love is not far away and we can exercise our right to not be offended and defeat the enemy who wants to ruin our day!!!...
