You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost it’s taste, how can it’s saltiness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men. Matthew 5: 13
The bible says there is beauty in a sweet, gentle and quiet spirit. I believe every one of us can relate to that. Most will even agree.
When the pressures of life get us down, the last thing we need is to be around someone with a short fuse or filled with fury. Like a scorned woman, bitter men and women have no appetite for sweetness. Should you choose to entertain their evil ways be ready to surrender your sweet spirit.
Usually, angry, miserable people live to spread misery. In their presence, you feel pressured, before one word leaves their lips. Do you know anybody fitting this description?
The people who fit this description really need Jesus. They are so spiritually and emotionally damaged, rendering themselves no good to anybody else.
Steer clear of people who make a special effort to be mean or evil. People like this are no good for themselves or anybody else! They are among those you must love from afar or risk losing yourself trying to save them.
“Lord please place in me a sweet, gentle and quiet spirit, so I can serve thee more abundantly.” Amen
