Proverbs 18:1 Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense.
Some people are unfriendly all the time. Most people are not..but some are. But most of us are somewhere in the middle...we are friendly a huge part of the time...but then there are those days where we don't feel very friendly.
What I am taking away from this verse is this... When I find myself being unfriendly I need to stop and ask myself, in what area of my life am I being self absorbed? What do I need to take to God? I am going to get myself back in balance with God so that I will not lash out...so that I will not forget all common sense. So often when I have had an unfriendly day that is the very day that I might lash out at Robby and wonder where it even came from. It came from being totally self-absorbed. I am learning that when I am self-absorbed I am not God aware. For God's love to flow through me I must be God aware.
So if I find myself being unfriendly, I will first send up a prayer to God and ask Him to send down His grace to make me able. Then I will head back home and get myself God centered so that I can become friendly again!
