Indignation is simply getting angry and upset. Our text reveals it usually leads to much criticism and condemnation.

Beloved, getting angry and upset depends on understanding, understanding on interpretation and interpretation on information. The same act that provoked the indignation and severe criticism of the disciples, earned the appreciation, condemnation and defence of Jesus. Until you’re led by the Holy Spirit you’ll never be compassionate. If you’re not compassionate, you’ll never interpret and understand the action of others correctly. Lack of understanding spells wrong assessment and opinion. Wrong assessment and opinion leads to being angry and upset! Ever desiring to overcome anger, complaint and criticism, be led by the Spirit!

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, may I always be led by Your Spirit, that I may interpret and understand other’s action and relate with them the way You do.
