Panic Among The Tribe?

“Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? 

They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. 

You want things, but you don’t get them. 

So you kill and are jealous of others. 

But you still cannot get what you want. 

So you argue and fight. 

You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God.”

‭‭James‬ ‭4:1-2‬ ‭ERV‬‬


There are incidents in all families where you cannot control all the circumstances around you. To add to the chaos, sometimes we just DO NOT get the right opportunities to solve them in an orderly manner. 

Many times:

  • pride
  • frustration 
  • anger 

causes us to lash out at each other. 

  • Words get in the way
  • Emotions become stumbling blocks
  • Pride makes mountains out of pebbles

and the misery and pain evolves into something that no one anticipated. 

Anger has one letter short of danger. 

Real life issues: Watch out for those in your inner circle who have turned against you and are aware of your emotional status. 

Some folks strive on challenging your loyalty and integrity. 

There are some people who know when you are weary or have become discouraged and will choose to become your major attackers through plots, gossip, or unkind words.

GREED, UNFORGIVENESS, PRIDE, and JEALOUSY are pitfalls that create havoc in families, relationships, and even business partners.

What are some things that causes relationships to change? 

  • No longer see things eye to eye
  • People change 
  • Breakdown in communication 
  • Dishonesty 
  • Pain
  • Deception

 When close relationships change and become distant relationships, it creates dysfunctional behaviour. 

Action: 

Deal gently with your opponents. 

WHY? 

The same measure of grace will be meted out to you when you need it. 

We ALL mess up, so be openminded  to gentleness and lavishly pour out lots of GRACE. 

Other people’s actions may influence you to want to get even – it’s your natural human response, but the final decision still lies within your power of decision making and the choices YOU will eventually make. 

Each one of us get to choose our pathway to our own journey in life  – therefore we will only be held accountable for the choices we make – NOT what OTHERS do. 

Whatever begins in anger usually ends in shame. Let things go!!!

REMINDER:

 “Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. You want things, but you don’t get them. So you kill and are jealous of others. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God.” James‬ ‭4:1-2‬ ‭ERV‬‬
