Today our state begins the transition from COVID-19 isolation to “normal,” whatever that is. Your state may be different, but the gate is open. I admit, I approach the gate very cautiously, looking carefully in every direction. Is it safe to wander beyond the confines of my yard?
I found a few verses that will be helpful in these next weeks of transition.
Don’t long for “the good old days.” This is not wise.Ecclesiastes 7:10
Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.James 1:19-20
Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.Proverbs 10:19
Control your temper, for anger labels you a fool.Ecclesiastes 7:9
As you head out the gate today for new adventures, remember these admonitions and give grace to those you encounter!
