"But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness." James 3:17-18
It had all the makings of a delicious novel... simple, quick and little involvement. The title of the slow cooker cookbook said all i longed to hear, "Fix it and Forget it". Who could resist? Not i! The way my brain functions, or non-functions, my family and i will surely reap comforting and filling benefits from such meals.
Food isn't the only element in life to possibly profit from a "fix it and forget it" attitude. How about....
a heated argument
alienation in a relationship
a selfish decision
lies and deception
a jealous fit
Lord, when the words or actions i thrash out on others are wrong, help me find the wisdom and courage to fix the situation, forget it and move on to a better path. Let me fill the one hurt with comfort, truth and peace, as You in turn, fill me with Your comfort and peace.
have a righteous-filled day!
