Application

There are times when life is not fun.  I work part time at an outdoor store for a number of reasons.  Today I had two customers that were rude, demanding, and – frankly I am at loss for words to describe their behavior.
Application
It will do no good to describe what happened – I would rather focus on my internal struggle.  I wanted to strangle them – I didn’t.  I prayed.  Probably a better choice.

I asked the Lord to please let me treat them with the respect and image bearer of Christ deserved even if they did not act like it.  It was a battle.

I have shared that I don’t like Philippians 2:3 – 4 very much.  I really didn’t like it this afternoon.  But if I am serious about being an apprentice of Christ, I have to apply that passage I don’t like very much when dealing with people who are acting like jerks.

This Christian Life thing is really a lot of fun sometimes…
