Today's Devotional

Outwitted

Edwin Markham, the poet, reached the age of retirement only to discover that the banker who was managing his money had defrauded him. He was so obsessed by anger and bitterness that he could no longer write poetry. While sitting at his desk and doodling one day the Holy Spirit convicted him that he must deal with his anger or it would destroy him. He decided then and there that he would forgive the man for the wrong he had done. Almost immediately there came to his mind one of his most famous poems entitled “Outwitted." You ought to read it for yourself. Don’t be “outwitted” by anger or bitterness. You must conquer it or it will conquer you. Master it or it will master you. Jesus can and will help.
