Good evening and welcome to SUNDAY NITE LIVE.
I’m Harold Herring and that’s my fine wife, Bev.
If you’re hearing our voices…chances are you’ve been the brunt of someone’s negative observations or rants in days gone by.
Perhaps you’ve even been a bit negative yourself. No worry your secret is safe with me. Besides you’ve probably already repented for being a nattering nabob of negativism.
I’ve been shown seven habits or behavior patterns which should not be a part of your life. . .if you want to maximize your potential and productivity for the Kingdom of God.
# 1 Stop rationalizing temper tantrums.
Have you ever heard someone justify pitching a fit (I believe that more accurately describes temper tantrum) by saying. . .
“I’ve always had a temper. I got it from my Dad. It’s just the way I am.”
Throwing a temper tantrum is the what you do. . .because you’ve been unwilling to change your behavior patterns and take control of your emotions.
Some folks blame their genes. . .claiming their temper tantrum is hereditary. That excuse might have worked when you were two or three. . .but not as an adult.
