Someone cut me off in traffic and caused me to hit my brakes. I’m not happy! I’m judgmental and angry as well. Maybe you would call that righteous anger as their thoughtless driving could have caused a collision and personal injury and even death. But if that’s how I often respond to others, being judgmental and angry can become bad habits. I need to change, but hasn’t change in my life already happened at the cross? Didn’t our Savior make that change for me in his death and resurrection? Maybe becoming more mature in Christ might be a better way to express what he is doing in our lives as Christians. We start as a babe in Christ and then grow in spiritual maturity. But I’m nitpicking! Whatever word used, as long as we understand Who made the change in us, that’s what really matters!
