Sometimes, it feels like there’s an elephant in the room, but nobody is noticing.
Maybe you even brought the elephant along. You didn’t mean to, but here it is anyway. The elephant. Taking up space. Distracting you. Threatening to throw its weight around.
I see your elephant. I see YOU. I notice. I understand.
Take a seat. Take my hand. Take this Book.
Here’s where to turn. Here’s where to turn.
(italics/emphasis below mine)
Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
