Grace for the Moment

 August 3rd____________ A Raging Fire                     Since God has shown us great mercy,                              I beg you to offer your lives as a                                             living sacrifice to him.                                                     Romans 1 2: 1        Resentment is the cocaine of the emotions.It causes our blood to pump and our energy level torise. But, also like cocaine, it demands increasinglylarge and moe frequent dosages. There is a danger-ous point at which anger ceases to be an emotionand becomes a driving force. A person bent onrevenge moves unknowingly further and furtheraway from being able to forgive, for to be without the anger is to be without a source of energy.       Hatred is the rabid dog that turns on its owner.       Revenge is the raging fire that consumes the arsonist.       Bitterness is the trap that snares the hunter.       And mercy is the choice that can set them all free.                                                  The Applause of Heaven ***Qoute is courtesy of 'Grace for the Moment' by Max Lucadon (page240)
