Bad Attitude

“Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness” – 1 John 2:19

Preach it, John! There’s no room in my heart for hate. Love has taken up full residency.

Yesterday, I was so rude to the teller at the bank. For no reason at all. Just gave him attitude. And everything he did and said I took personal. When I left I shook my head, not at him but myself. What was wrong with me? I went in chipper and left angry.

I did not “do all things holy” like the post I put up yesterday.

I checked my attitude in the parking lot, prayed a sweet prayer of peace to fall over me and goodness to flood me.

Then headed over to the 99 cent store to grab a few things and saw an opportunity to be kind by buying the Veteran in front of me his 99 cent lasagna. He tried using one of his VA checks for just one dollar and the clerk was clearly frustrated with the paper check. So I asked her to add his item to mine.

He thanked me and I thanked God for that opportunity and His ocean of grace.
