Lk11:27-54 - Key


And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge [him] vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:
Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

We shouldn't try to get people to say things so we can find reasons to accuse them. Also, when they did this, Jesus still wasn't provoked. We should take responsibility for our response to other people.

Isaiah 37:29 talks about rage. We shouldn't be angry or speak angrily. Even when other people are being provocative, we can be like Jesus and not respond the wrong way.


If people try to provoke me, I'll consider that I'm responsible for whether I get angry or not, and I'll remember to not get angry.
