TITLE: DON’T BE A REACTOR
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
GENESIS 4:13 “And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.”
Who is a reactor? You are a reactor if you act by feelings. A reactor will tell you “I get angry easily, I am short tempered” A reactor will act without thinking about the consequence. A reactor will talk not minding what follows. A reactor will do anything, mess up wonderful relationships without thinking and may later regrets what he has done or said.
Cain was a reactor. He got angry over God’s choice of accepting his brother Abel’s sacrifice, he allowed himself to be overtaken by jealousy, and all he could think about was to get his brother out of the way. Reactors act by emotions.
If someone seems to be doing better than you in a certain field, the best you can do is to use the time you should have wasted thinking of how to get them out of the way, to rather think of how you can get better, not better than the person, but better than yourself.
Another thing you can do is to celebrate that person, get closer and ask them to show you or tell you their secret if they can. Being jealous of other people’s success is an evil trait, every child of God must kill it.
Reactors will always pay people in their own coin; always retaliating, always thinking revenge, malice, unforgiveness, resentment, fighting, quarreling and suppressing. Have you not heard Jesus saying, do good to those who hate you? If you love only those who love you, you don’t know love. If you have love in you, you have God in you, and you can’t help but love everyone. Why? That’s how God is, He loves everyone.
What Cain got after reacting was too much for him to bear. Before you act, please consider carefully possible outcomes, be sure that is what you want and can deal with, be sure you really want to and need to close that door no matter what it will cost you.
Thinking before acting will help you not to live in regrets.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
