Before You Throw Me Overboard

Before You Throw Me Overboard

Last night I dreamed I was the captain of a ship.  A crew member made me mad so I threw him overboard.

I went down to the galley to make some Indian food.  I was adding spices but couldn’t find the turmeric. (It’s a root with a bitter, pungent flavor.)  You can’t make Indian food without turmeric.  I was getting frustrated.  One of the crew members told me the guy I just threw overboard had it.  I felt like an idiot.

When I woke up I had these two thoughts:

  1. The anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.  (James 1:20)
  2. I should never be too hasty to throw people overboard, they might just offer some spice that I need in my life.
