God Blessed Morning Family!
Be kind to one another for we are One in Spirit and when we are kind we honor the Spirit of God Within. When faced with harshness be patient and respond in kindness for you will Know that this is not your battle to receive nor is it your burden to carry. It is difficult not to respond to the brutal attacks of others for our instincts tell us we must protect and defend ourselves, but if we allow our instincts to take over our ability to think through a situation we will be at war constantly. Walk with God and you will see that your desire to respond to a perceived threat is the egos attempt to get in front of God. I am not saying you should not defend yourself if someone is physically attacking you but what I am saying is that we practice physical defense for verbal attacks more than we practice turning the other cheek. You will find that the majority of the time the best defences is silence, for when you don't respond you remove the perceived power in which the other person's ego is attempting to usurp from you. When you respond in kindness you place God before you and your ego, for in your silence His presence is acknowledged and honored. "Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;" Romans 12:10-11 Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah. Lifewateringwords.com #LOVELWW
