I’m not like that!
Who has never heard from their mother, or someone very close, a complaint like, “Stop being a slacker, lazy, annoying, negative, bossy, jealous, or…” and the list goes on! Now I ask you: What is the reaction when hearing something negative about us? DENIAL, isn’t that true?! “I’m not like that, it’s her who only sees the negative things, she doesn’t love me, she only knows how to demand things… lol!”
But really, deep down, if we were to leave aside the feeling of self-defense and analyze what our attitudes are showing, in reality that word will have some truth, because in order to listen to something like that, it’s because, somehow, we are giving a reason!
Emotional faith is always ready to defend us, and wants us to look to our “nice”, positive side and doesn’t want us to think, reason! And you know what happens? You don’t develop, because you don’t want to think, you don’t want to recognize that you actually have that problem, and yet begin to judge in a negative way those who just want your good.
Discipline is order in the Kingdom of Heaven!
” No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11
If you listen to the discipline you receive, you will have a life of blessings and peace, but if you reject it, than the opposite will happen! Therefore, listen to those who have disciplined you, as it is for your own good!
God bless you and until next week!
