I had many opportunities to become irritated with people when I walked along the Sea of Galilee. So many people came to Me with so many problems. I easily could have become overwhelmed and even irritated with some people.
It took the power of the Holy Spirit to help Me not to become continually irritated with the Pharisees and Scribes. As you know, I did lose it on occasion with those who took advantage of others. It was righteous indignation that I expressed when I turned over the tables of the money changers who were cheating people when they bought their sacrifices. They had defiled the Temple that was designed to be a house of prayer.
Be on guard against irritation in your life. Irritation is a fruit of pride. When things do not go your way or when people disagree with you, you can easily become irritated with situations and people. Keep in mind that I consider every person a person worth the shedding of My blood to save them. This thought will help you to be patient with people who could irritate you.
