My daughter told me I’m mad all the time

Posted on 7/14/2019 by Greg Yoder

How would you like to be hit with that. Yep, you guessed it. I’m that angry guy. At first, I thought, what is she talking about? I’m passionate about EVERYTHING. When I’m happy I laugh loud. When I’m sad, I cry loud and when I’m mad I’m just loud. It’s usually over quickly, unless... It’s the unless part that made me realize my selfishness made me want to be in control. When we realize that we’re God’s workmanship, or masterpiece, and we’re created by God to do good, we have to stop and say, “No matter what someone else is doing to us what can we do to show God’s love to that person?” Are you angry? Remember you’re God’s masterpiece. Show His love, not your selfish anger. 

Suggested Reading: Ephesians 2:10
