Rawhide Gospel

How do you feel  and react when others cut in on you while driving, shopping, speaking, etc.? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1622).

I have learned in life that one needs to develop a tough skin.  This is essential  to avoid constant internal turmoil, guilt trips, and endless internal bickering about what should have been done or could have been done or should not have been done.  I have come to rely upon the Holy Spirit. If the Holy Spirit leads me to perform a certain action, then I have confidence in what I do and people who seek to embroil me in self-doubt are wasting their time. If I have one criticism about Christians it is that they are too thin-skinned and quake at the thought of being criticized or embroiled in conflict.  Jesus for the most part maintained equanimity within the circle of his disciples, but as soon as he stepped out to meet the self-centered world conflict ensued. Let us be honest and true to the word of God and let chips fly where they may.
