Wednesday Wedding Winners – Respond, Don’t React!

Wednesday Wedding Winners by Jett Life Ministries
RESPOND, DON’T REACT!
I received this great piece of advise, not from a pastor, but from a church secretary! It has stuck with me ever since.
We perceive an offense. We feel our emotions. Then naturally REACT! Bam – Pow – Ouch!
RESPONDING IS: Thinking before you speak. It’s praying (quietly inside your head to God) before you speak. It takes effort, It takes practice. It takes trusting God to do things His way and be the person He has created you to become.

Ephesians 4:31-32: “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ forgave you.”

The church secretary had; “Respond, don’t react” printed and placed on her refrigerator as a reminder. What will you do to change your ways and better you and your marriage?

Thank you church Secretary. You know who you are.

Love ya
