Scripture of the Day - Agur

As I was working yesterday doing some rather dusty work I variously got nasally-congested and had to sneeze which forced me to blow my nose into my grubby shirt. I soon realized that there was some blood involved to a greater degree than I recall ever having on my shirt as a result of blowing my nose on it (something I would ONLY do to grubby shirts while doing grubby work). As I pondered upon this the following verse came to mind loud and clear:

"Surely the churning of milk brings forth butter, and the wringing of the nose brings forth blood: so the forcing of wrath brings forth strife."
~ Proverbs 30:33

I immediately recognized that I was being communicated this passage and immediately (or nearly so) knew in my heart to what my Creator referred. Of late I have seen a supposed-friend be a real assmonkey and I have contemplated playing the Alpha Male with him and light him up on the phone putting him in his rightful place lower down the pecking order from me. From this I realized I am being instructed to continue to play it cool and turn the other cheek and remain above the fray and simply let this clown be a jerk and hang himself on his own petard. For you non-believers out there I want you to know this is one of the ways the Creator communicates with His children in this life.
