philosophical donkey

Sometimes I get really annoyed by people and lose my temper. When I lose my temper I can’t see anything in front of me except the jackass that caused my annoyance.

Occasionally I pause and remember that the situation may actually be a message. I recall the story of Balaam and his donkey and try to set aside my frustration and anger to see if there is a message, am I being detoured or detained for a reason, is this stumbling block meant to redirect me?

Mind you I said “occasionally” I do this. My flesh is weak, and has very little patience, so most of the time I am just annoyed by the jackass, not lost in philosophical thought about it.
