“Bad temper is contagious—don’t get infected.” Proverbs 22:25 MSG
Sometimes people can be rude, very rude. When other people are unkind to you, you may be tempted to strike back, either verbally or in some other way. Instead, remember that God corrects other people’s behaviors in His own way, and He doesn’t need your help (even if you’re totally convinced that He does). When other people behave cruelly, foolishly, or impulsively, don’t be hotheaded. Speak up for yourself as politely as you can, and walk away. Then forgive everybody as quickly as you can, and leave the rest up to God. Amen!
