Spiritual Life Coaching – Overreaction

Spiritual Life Coaching – Overreaction

It seems like we are becoming a nation of over-reactors to everything. A long time ago while attending a parenting class I learned and repeated this phrase over and over to myself, “Don’t react, act.” Reaction often becomes a fight or flight approach to living. When we think (THINK) we have time to act. If you were to create an acronym for A C T, what would you write down to remind you to pause and access the situation, control your emotion so you don’t overreact, and then take action? We need more reasonable thinking people and fewer hotheads. Whether it’s road rage or politicians with bad hair we need to curb the anger. James 1:20 says, “For the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” Give yourself a time out if you need it but act don’t react.

Be Well…
