Sometimes my computer acts like a stubborn donkey. Then I become impatient and angry. When that happens, I do not get my work done.
Our Bible Reading today is about Balaam. Balaam was riding on his donkey. But Balaam was disobeying God. God became angry with Balaam, so He sent an angel to stop Balaam. The donkey could see the angel, but Balaam could not see the angel. The donkey turned off the road. Balaam hit the donkey and forced him back on the road.
This happened several times. Each time, Balaam became impatient with the donkey. Finally, God told Balaam that the donkey was keeping him from danger. Then Balaam realized that he was disobeying God.
When I become impatient, I am just like Balaam. I become frustrated and angry. Instead, I should stop and pray. I should ask God to help me be patient again.
Maybe you will be impatient today. Don’t become angry and frustrated. Ask God to help you be patient and kind.
