🔴 The Enemy of the Mind Part 4

written by: Torrie Slaughter

“It’s not about how you do it but what you do.” Well, that’s a lie!

Have you ever worked with someone who complains or uses self-deprecating language? More often than not, I find myself battling resistance. The other party has boxed themselves in a corner, and the simple solution takes hours. Add a little arrogance and a splash of pride, and that is a recipe for a cringy process. 

But God!

For believers in Christ Jesus, refocuses our attitude, and deciding to admit our shortcomings healthily can effectively squash doubt, fear, and negativity. Our work is to be done unto the Lord and our words seasoned with salt (Colossians 4:6). By devoting ourselves to doing things well, we can achieve love.

Prayer: Father, we are thankful for the wisdom and mercy you extend to us. Please help us to regard everything with a vision of kindness and to listen graciously. Amen
