Dear Lorene,

Recognize this as a pride issue.

“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:10 ESV)

Ignore the stranger; focus on your child.

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”(Prov. 15: 1 ESV)

Let your actions speak louder than your words.

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16 ESV)
