Thought for the Day

Filed under: Thought for the Day — kellporten @ 15:52

The flesh and the Holy Spirit are both inside of us, and they fight each other. Both have a will. In my flesh, I can be outraged and indignant when someone mistreats me, but the Holy Spirit wants me to do as Jesus told us to do, namely, to forgive. What is it that determines who will get its way? The answer is, the one who we give our permission to. If we think it is OK to get angry when someone steps on our toes for the fiftieth time, then we will get angry. But, if we want to follow Jesus, we will choose to forgive.
