...for I am a worm.
How many times a day do I lose my temper, and usually for NO good reason? I shudder to count, and I also highly doubt any of my outbursts are in the least "righteous indignation" worthy of being expressed! How easy it is to become angry with someone... What a struggle to control the thoughts and malicious intents of my heart! Nobody "makes" me mad --- I choose to be offended, annoyed, ticked off, and wrathful. Granted, people aren't perfect and do commit sin against me --- BUT, nowhere am I given permission in Scripture to fly off the handle at them, verbally berate them, "murder" them in my heart, or any such thing. As a Christian, I don't have that right... As a Christian, I gave up those "human tendencies" for Christ's way. Or, at least, I was supposed to have.
