Do you irritate God? We spend much of our lives getting irritated by others because they don't do things the way we wish they would. Is their failure to meet our personal preferences a valid reason for our losing patience with them?

In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:19-22)...Keep Reading
