Today I was woken up by a call from a friend informing me about a program that was happening soon and how I can tell my friends about it. We spoke more in detail and ended it. So as I was still a bit grudgy, I asked friend, lets say B, if she would like to come to this Christian programme with me and she partially ignored me. One of the things I really don’t like is ignorance, and I had mentioned it to her before on this certain trait of hers, so there was no point talking about it again. Instead, I just repeated the question and she said she’ll think about it. Then I prompted her to come, but she said she’ll still think about it and that’s totally understandable and fine as there’s still time.
It wasn’t until I was writing to God, that the Holy Spirit brought to mind that I was also very guilty of what I was annoyed at my friend doing. I still prayed for her, but I realized I needed to pray about myself concerning this trait as well.
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?Matthew 7:3 ESV
The thing is, I usually leave my messages on delivered for a long time and respond only when I ‘need’ to, feel like, or when I’m about to post on my story. And that’s basically ignorance. The only difference between my friend and I in this, is that I hide behind the screens. And this is something I constantly do. Meanwhile my friend doesn’t always ignore people in real life. She even rapidly answers her messages online and doesn’t waste people’s time.
Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the Lord!Lamentations 3:40 ESV
Nah, this humbled me big time. I need to be examining myself more, but trusting in the Holy Spirit to help me and keep me on the right path.
Have a good night loves! 🌹❤🌹
