How can I be harsh with you while trying to say we need more of Jesus?
Jesus was gentle.
A fig tree cannot produce grapes; nor can peace come from violence. The violent thought and word can never heal; it can only wound.
My friends, I cannot, in good conscience, preach the gospel out of anger.
When I forget that, please forgive me.
Holy Spirit, shield others from my bullets. Jesus, forgive me for stabbing you.
