Anger Can Lead to Distraction

A multitude of people gets angry and offended when people attack them or speak against them. They are so quick to fray insults and accusations that were thrown at them.
However, let’s take a look at a great man from the Bible named David. He never got angry in all the numerous times’ Goliath attacked the Israelites.
Goliath would insult and even ridicule the Israelites, but David never responded. But when Goliath begins to speak evil about the God of Israel, and that David, ready to reprisal, questioned, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine to defile the God of the armies of Israel?”
The moment Goliath communicate against the God of Israel, David entered into defense posture.
Why is it then, that you, as a child of God, can hear many insults against your God yet keep quiet? Why do you get disturbed the way you do when they talk about you and, however, remain indifferent when they insult your God?
We, as soldiers of Christ, rise and learn how to fight and defend this God whom we serve. We are here to be an exemplary trooper who will secure the cause of the gospel no matter what may seem to happen.

Thank you for reading.
