If you are on your way to the goal and stop and throw stones at any dog that barks at you, you will never reach that goal"
Fyodor Dostoevsky- From Fr Joe's Newsletter, (email@example.com)
Verbalizing my resentfulness yesterday of different people and being really mad at myself for doing that!
I carry resentment like that in my head and then it burst out. I don't feel like I am resentful, but then there it is poisoning the air around me. Clearly and ego thing!
So pondering and praying this morning, how can I think differently about these people?
These are people that are having an inward struggle with themselves. They are at war in someway or another with their own peace. I need to pray for them, which seems obvious, however I need to not take what they are projecting as a personal attack, and realize it is the spillover from a war that is going on inside.
If I understand the dog is barking from pain then am not tempted to throw stones. By God's Grace!
