Peace vs Confusion

Have you ever known a person that brings confusion to any group of which they are a part? 

I remember someone saying that every time they had a family gathering there was one of their members that would always start something that got everyone at each other’s throats, and then would leave the table so that someone would have to go after them and try to soothe the situation. 

I call that trying to get everyone’s attention and I would have to say that is my most un-favorite kind of person. 

Something else that I really detest is a person that will take something they have heard and repeat it inappropriately which causes more confusion and trouble. I have noticed on the Social Media pages how people will put all their business out there and you can tell by reading their status with who it is they are angry, or to whom they are trying to send a “message”, if you know their friends and family. People say things they know will irritate and cause trouble between family members, or friends, which seems to be especially true among the younger generation. Some of the younger people read their former friends and ex-sweethearts pages and then comment, saying something mean or “catty”! We have given ourselves one more way to live in a “Soap Opera” world. 

James 3:13-16 says: 13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

There is something else to watch for and that is being confused within your own mind because it isn’t any prettier on you than it is on anyone else. 

It is easy to become confused, I know that sometimes I feel like one of my feet is nailed to the floor because I am going around in circles! That’s when you must stop, take a deep breath and think about what’s going on in your mind and there are times that I stop and make a list to organize everything. 

Are you thinking about things that are upsetting to you? 

Isaiah 26:3   You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

Psalm 85:10 “Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.” 

Be peaceful and try to never, ever be the cause of confusion!
