“You mean your dad told you that!”
“You fool! How could you tell a 5 year old what you said?! Why do you keep involving the children in this whole mess? How low and immature can you get?”
“Can’t you manage your own mess and keep this strife between you and me; do you always have to deposit dirt in their minds for your own selfish ends?”……Hisses!
“I can’t believe him...” ‘just impossible,
Why would she put me down like that in front of the children?’.... I'll teach her!
I will not stand for it, can’t imagine the effrontery of her, so pompous and full of herself….fool!
The story goes on and on and on!
From home to home, relationship to relationship the issue varies in manifestation but basically from the same format.
When there is strife and quarrel, usually there is no control on words and actions except for those who are extremely mature and wise with a gentle mien of the Abigail (of ABIGAIL and NABAL fame)category
It takes pure divine wisdom to see beyond the moment and think ahead of the matter before words are spoken or actions taken
What does the Bible say?
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, You fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
The Bible states that if you call your brother , fool, you are liable of hell fire (God help many of us who do this soooo often! We just can not help it sometimes!)
When I came upon this Bible passage for the umpteenth time it suddenly struck me that God takes pains to give us guidelines even in the minutest details that could derail us, they are written down for us not to forget but to keep them ALWAYS in remembrance!
