It is April 1st, winter is gone and spring is here. I cannot believe where the time is going. Each week I choose a new topic for prayer based on my experiences throughout the week. Yesterday I experience something from a friend that I had to address. It happens often and I really had not dealt with it. Yesterday my friend raised their voice in a loud tone to tell me that I had said I was going to do something, in which was not true. They were very stern with me regarding what they thought agreed to do. I told them in a very soft tone voice to calm down, I told them that they must have misunderstood and that we could talk about it calmly. I realized the disrespect that I had been shown and was not willing to allow people to treat me like a child. I am an adult and appreciate when people understand that making one feel uncomfortable by their actions and the way they present their selves when speaking to someone in which they do not agreed. My friend realized that they need to calm down in order to get my attention for me listen to what they had to say. This incident has cause me to look inward at myself because I have a very loud and expressive personality and it may come across at times as disrespected. I never want to come across to anyone that way. So to add to the prayer list this week is respect for others. The tone we use in our voices to speak to one when we do not agree has its way of coming across with the wrong message to the other person.
Romans 12:10 ESV
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
1 Peter 2:17
New Living Translation
Respect everyone, and love your Christian brothers and sisters. Fear God, and respect the king.
