What to call it???

I don't know what to call what I'm about to write. I find it hard to think of a name for this one. Actually, I'm stunned. I was reading that Ancient Wisdom book, and what he was talking about just really convicted me. He asked, "What do you get upset about?" He categorized what the main things people get upset about, and there were three levels.

The first level, is people who get upset when they're ignored. That puts me out of the race. I get really upset when people ignore me. You may not see that I'm upset but I probably am.

The second level, is people who get upset when their insulted. I can still work on this one, but I don't blow if someone insults me.

And the third level, is people who get upset when their harmed either physical, financial, or emotional. Financially I'm in debt already so that one I don't really have a problem with, but physically and emotionally I'll get squeezed.

We may think it's alright to blow-up when these things happen to us, but let me ask you, What did Jesus go through before the cross? He was spat on... He was beat... He was whipped... He was lied about... He was mocked... And He was silent. Why? Was it because he didn't have a defence? He did it to fulfill prophecy. Read Isaiah 53:7. This is amazing, read 1 Peter 2:23. It says, "And while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who Judges righteously." Amazing

For His Son's Glory,
