Today I was in Aldi's getting a few things. I had maybe ten things in my cart, I was next in line, this guy walks up and says 'this is all I got' which was one thing and walks right in front of me. Now truth be told, I probably would have said 'go ahead' but he walked in front of me. And I was MAD! I mumbled 'I can't believe you did that' so something to that affect, and truly, I was going to just go nuts on him, I just thought who does he think he is thinking his time was more important than mine? and blah blah blah, I only had like one bags worth of groceries, and suddenly, it came over me, the Holy Spirt, "shut up, he's had a rough day" and that I did.
Because really, who did I think I was thinking my time was more important than his? And really, if I was going to let him go anyway, who really cares.
I was just texting someone about how satan uses time to keep me away from God, and that time was no different, how could I show someone the love that was shown to me, if I can't even let someone walk in front of me in a grocery line.
And so again, I am reminded...
James 1:19-20 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
