“A man who has committed a mistake and doesn’t correct it is committing another mistake.” ~Confucius

This Follows and is related directly to the post on anger… A coworker planted feelings of discontent in me yesterday.  There is, of course, healthy discontent that fosters upward change. Mine was the unhealthy kind.  I didn’t deal with the bad feelings to shut them out, but allowed my mind to ruminate (‘chew on them’ as a cow would her cud). My mind was in an undisciplined mode so I listened to Satan’s natterings for I know he loves to increase ‘dark’ discontent. It serves his purposes well. Before long I was discontented on a number of things.  I didn’t think of it at the time but could have ‘cast him out’, by sincerely, earnestly (not with arrogance) telling him in the name of Jesus Christ to leave me. This really works but we must be reverent, even prayerful, when seeking the Lord’s intervention in this way.  But my whole mood and work day seemed dark, because I had been listening to the ‘master’ of darkness / dark thoughts.  Also, another lesson learned… do I sometimes plant feelings of ‘dark’ discontent in others by my thoughtless comments and actions?  kdm
