When People Annoy Us — 6 Comments

  1. Matthew 25:40 I was just meditating on this scripture earlier: “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”
    I think we all have the opportunity to minister to Jesus while we’re here. Perhaps He puts these people in our lives for a reason. And as we have learned from the book of James “If we don’t have love, we don’t know God.”
    Your article is timely for the times we are living in. We need to stop being distracted by the things of this world and look to Jesus. And as
    Romans 13:11 says “It is already the hour to wake up from sleep…

  2. Oh yes. Another scripture I had set aside for today was this:
    Colossians 4:6
    Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

    And I set it aside for these people. I want to remember not to give place to the devil. I will answer to God for my actions regardless of what they say or do to me. We are to pray for our enemies.

    Matthew 12:37
    For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

    When we know God’s word and hold other people accountable to it yet, we do the same, we will incur the same judgment we use on them. That is a very sobering thought for me.

    Matthew 7:2
    For you will be judged by the same standard with which you judge others, and you will be measured by the same measure you use.
