The word prompt of the day is QUILL…which makes me think of feathers….which makes me think of the phrase “ruffled feathers.”
Ruffled feathers defined:
“This is an idiom which means to become irritated, confused, agitated, or annoyed by someone.”
(Sometimes they are doing this purposefully, sometimes not.)
Sigh. I get my feathers ruffled too easily. How to prevent this?
I already KNOW… but now I need to DO…by God’s grace.
Walk by the Spirit and all that.
Am I getting better at this after 25+ years as a regenerated person?
Sometimes I don’t know.
But after reading the Bible book of Proverbs many, many times, I saw Proverbs 12:16 for the “first time” the other day. I want to remember this one.
A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted. (NLT) The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult. (ESV)
