A Fiery Temper
Do you have a fiery temper? So did the apostle John, a real “son of thunder,” ready to destroy others for their inhospitality to Jesus and his followers. And yet, years later, at the cross, his heart had changed. “So when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, look, here is your son!’ He then said to his disciple, ‘Look, here is your mother!’ From that very time the disciple took her into his own home.” (John 19:26, 27) Jesus can turn a son of thunder into a compassionate disciple. All it takes is a willing heart.
