A fellow soldier for Jesus writes “during a recent conversation with my son he made the comment that I get mad at him a lot. I was floored! cause I am very careful not to say the wrong thing as my son has had a very difficult year with illness . he then said it was not anything I said but my tone!”
Thanks for your example. I often add to my poorly controlled tone, rolling my eyes in disgust, jumping in and “fixing” the situation that the other person is responsible for which says ” you are too lazy or incompetent and rebellious to respond to my asking so I have to cover for hopeless you!etc. No wonder no one likes to hang around with me, except my grandchildren, God bless them.
I tell you, it it weren’t for GRACE! Can you imagine watching video tapes that had footnotes on what our heart was saying played before all at the judgment! Good thing God has such a good ability to choose to forget.
Verle, chief of sinners, and I can prove it!
