Proactive leadership knows when to let the flame of a divisive spirit burn out and stay the course. Have you ever said, “don’t take the bait” to a friend who is about to be consumed by an argument? By trusting the Lord, we have a tool to control anger by seemingly doing nothing. In actuality, we are proactively choosing what is worth our time and attention and letting God deal with those things that are out of our hands! – Teresa
Psalm 4:2-5 (NLT)
2 “How long will you people ruin my reputation?
How long will you make groundless accusations?
How long will you continue your lies? Interlude
3 You can be sure of this:
The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to him.
4 Don’t sin by letting anger control you.
Think about it overnight and remain silent. Interlude
5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit,
and trust the Lord.”
