Chip Stam cited those words by Harold Best in the first video I linked to earlier. Those words have been rolling around in my heart and mind for the past couple of days.
Isn't that a wonderful goal--a sign of good mental health and genuine obedience of faith?
I'm afraid that far too often an accurate assessment of myself would reveal:
- easily annoyed
- easily irritated
- easily impatient
- easily hurt
- easily angered
- easily distracted
- easily arrogant
Not a bad way to pray--for ourselves and for others.
