James 3:16-17 Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there will be confusion and every kind of evil. But the wisdom that comes from God is like this: First, it is pure. It is also peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help people who have trouble and to do good for others. This wisdom is always fair and honest.

When was the last time you had a sense of humour failure? You know, things were going along fine, you were happy, and then, someone did something that caused you to snap.

From time to time, we all have what I love to call, a sense of humour failure. You just can’t take it anymore. You’ve tried and tried and tried, but that’s it! Something has to give. Bang! A sense of humour failure. Sometimes, we vent some steam and get on with life, but other times it’s a whole bunch more tragic than that.

Last night on the news, I watched a report of two young men who’d been shot dead by their neighbour over some dispute that apparently, had been brewing for months. I mean, it’s tragic for sure, but what leads to that sort of response to a neighbourly dispute? Well the frustration, the anger, the resentment, the sense of injustice and indignation, they all conspire together, they all swill around in your heart until eventually, BANG!

I wonder if you recall the last time you blew up at someone. Can you remember what was it about? And let me ask you this: was it worth it? Was your response commensurate with the issue at hand? If you could hit the rewind button and replay how you handled that situation, is there some better way you could have found to handle it?

James 3:16-17 Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there will be confusion and every kind of evil. But the wisdom that comes from God is like this: First, it is pure. It is also peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help people who have trouble and to do good for others. This wisdom is always fair and honest.

That’s God’s wisdom, God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
