We can all get aggravated - see if you can related to these.
On their cell phones and driving
Gas prices that go up and never down
People that don’t return emails or phone calls
No toilet paper in public bathrooms
Rude and mean people
People that think they know everything
Loud music when I'm not playing it
So we can all get aggravated. The problem with aggravation is that we all tend to react. We need to learn to respond - not react. Reacting to aggravation can quickly move into anger and anger can get us into big trouble.
Hebrews 12:15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled;
Proverbs 13:16 Every prudent man acts out of knowledge, but a fool exposes his folly.
To win over aggravation, then we need to do three spiritual things on a regular basis.
