Bride of Christ

A Short Flight!

You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.  James 1:19  NLT

The story goes like this… Two crows were sitting on a pump handle.  A horse walked by and left some droppings filled with corn and oats.   The two crows took advantage of the fine meal.  After they had gorged themselves full, they hopped back up on the pump handle.  As they sat there, they began to argue with each other over which was better… the corn or the oats!   The argument got so heated that one of them flew away, only to discover that he had become so full that his wings couldn’t carry him.   He crashed to the earth and was killed.

The moral of the story?   “Don’t fly off the handle when you are full of manure”!    

Today beloved, let’s purpose to practice being quicker to listen than we are at speaking.    An angry word will let everyone know what you are full of!  
Besides…
"Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts.”  James 1:20-21

And remember: If you fly off to fast, it will be a short flight!
