Food For Thought: Booker T Washington said: “I will not permit any man to diminish my soul to hatred.” In the practical application of truth, we come not to discovering how the rubber is to hit the road. In the nitty gritty world where we live, regardless of another’s actions, we must be concerned that our reactions always reflect the fruits of the Spirit in the real world. We should ask ourselves Am I patient? Am I kind? Am I generous? Am I humble? Am I courteous? Am I good tempered? Regardless of what another person’s actions may be too many of us will likely give a negative answer.
