Lord of mercy! This was how I felt after a conversation i held with two people today. One of those conversations that start and then a few minutes later you wish you had walked out of the room before it began. Man must now even be discerning enough to know when something is about to happen…lol. Anyway, somewhere along the conversation, I had to keep quiet as I realised we were not going to agree. Although I cannot write the details of the conversation it made me wonder on some things. Sometimes we encounter some attitudes, habits and opinions that make you want to scream. Sometimes, we even observe some in ourselves that make us cringe. Those things that make you ask “why are you saying, behaving or acting like this?!” I think even Jesus encountered some of our funny thought pattern. You may have heard Him ask his disciples questions like “where is your faith?” or “do you still not understand?” and “how could you not know I was not talking about bread!” lol and to Peter “get behind me Satan!”
My conclusion after my discussion? The word of God is my plumb line.
Make a tree bad and the fruit will be bad, make a tree good and you will enjoy the lovely fruit or the drink from it. So if you hate the fruit, pull the tree down.
…Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God – Romans 12:2
