Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap – Galatians 6:7
It’s a law of life, both physical and spiritual that you reap what you sow. Every action has results. If you plan to please your desires, you’re sowing to the flesh; and you’ll reap a crop of sorrow and evil. Take time and think of what kind of seeds are you sowing in the soil of your life? How can your body be healed, while there is anxiety in your mind? As long as there is disease in the thoughts, there will be disease in the body. Ten minutes of unbridled temper can waste enough strength to do a half day of work. Our physical energy is a gift from God, entrusted to us to be employed for His glory. It’s a sin to take His gift and dissipate it through the trap doors of the evil emotions of the disposition.
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come – Matthew 24:42
No one knows when Jesus will return, but the Bible instructs us that He will return. (For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump (trumpet) of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first – 1st Thessalonians 5:16). Apostle Paul admonishes believers to be prepared for His coming because He was coming for a church without a wrinkle, blemish or a spot.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city – Proverbs 16:32
Usually people who can control their anger is called a push-over or a passive person. It takes more energy to control ones tongue, and emotions rather than saying what’s on their mind and emotions. Self control is superior to conquest. Losing control may cause you to forfeit what you want the most. It can also cause you to be sorry for words spoken that you can’t take back.
