Tom's Word From California!

No matter where my husband goes, he has the heart of a teacher and today he sent me a bunch of text messages asking me to please post to my blog and to Facebook. He felt it was urgent for someone to hear today. So below is what he sent me:

Don't allow yourself to lose control of your temper. If you are a Christian and you lose control of your temper, who has control? A Christian with an out of control temper is a devastating tool in the ready hands of a spiteful devil. Keep your temper under the control of the Holy Spirit.

What kind of temper control do you want your kids to use in their homes? They will follow our example and we must be faithful to show them the Godly way.

Be angry and sin not and do not give the devil a foothold. Never allow yourself to lose control because it is then that you will commit sin. And don't let the sun go down while you are still angry. Forgive offenses before bedtime so that bitterness will not take hold and become the stronghold of a grudge which leads to more anger and hurt and may well be a breeding ground for even more sin to be committed.

We are commanded to love one another and it is the Lord who says this.

The time is now to obey the Word of God, no matter how we feel, and be true disciples of Christ so that we can stand in the presence of God unashamedly. A Christian who truly follows after the law of God with his life on the altar sacrificed in the service of a Holy God.
