After talking with my dad on the phone yesterday, he reminded me that the Devil is out to cause us to get distracted and upset. He reminded me that we need to stick to the truth of the Cross and redemption through Jesus Christ. He reminded me that if something upsets me, I need to discern if that anger is righteous anger or an anger from the flesh.
The Bible tells us to discern good from evil and that we’ll get better at discerning the more we discern. Paul also told Timothy to avoid getting entangled in civilian affairs.
There are somethings going on this world that are wrong (many things even) but some of these are things I don’t need to be involved in.
And in discerning the good and perfect will of God, I will find that there is peace in this tumultuous world in Jesus.
