We all encounter people who hate us. speak badly of us, and work against us.
Sometimes it’s because of nothing that we have done, but, other times we’ve given them a good reason to be pissed off at us.
It may be someone who hates you, your family, your race, your faith, your nation…
It may be someone you know, or someone you’ve never met.
The success of their efforts is partially determined by our reaction.
When we waste our energy reciprocating anger, rage, wrath, and revenge…we are rewarding their efforts. That’s what they want.
DON’T ALLOW THEM TO REJOICE IN YOUR RANT!
Channel that energy into learning from your enemy.
Learn what they did well…
Learn from their focus and discipline…
Learn from their resilience, resolve, and persistence.
Absorb the blow, and fight a spiritual battle of humility and wisdom.
That’s how you get God, The Lord of Hosts, Yehovah Sabaoth to fight for you.
Uncontrolled anger and thirst for revenge are distractions, but Emotional Intelligence is a spiritual superpower!
Proverbs 29:11 (NKJV)
11 A fool vents all his (A)feelings,[a]
But a wise man holds them back.
Ephesians 4:31-32 (NIV)
31 Get rid of(A) all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.(B) 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another,(C) forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.(D)
