OH MY SOUL!!!! I had done it again! I slipped from living in the Spirit to reacting from my soul! You know....the soul - your mind, your will, and your emotions. The place where you act out. My mom used to say, "Don't be ugly." Well, I had been "ugly". I knew it. I hated it. I loathed it but there it was and there was nothing I could do to take it back. The thing was, it didn't take but a second to slip. One momentary lapse of Spirit control and there it was. It seems that since the Lord has been speaking about returning to the "former things". I have been tested.....tested to the very limit of my flesh and yet there is no excuse....for IF HE is the One calling to return - I must return by His way and not my own. There it is. My will. My iron justifying will. Left...
- "If you stay angry at your brother/sister your guilty of judgment."
- If you call someone "fool, empty headed" you are to be brought before the religious officials
- Finally, if you call someone, "moron, good for nothing", then you are guilty of hellfire!
Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:13-14
