“Luke 9:54-55Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

Little girls are not made out of sugar and spice and and everything nice nor are little boys made out of puppy dog tails. They are made out of all of the lives of their ancestors. So are you. So am I. Their choices created our lives, as our choices will create the ones who come after us.
Problems arise when we forget as James and John forgot, which side we are called to play on. After their Master and themselves were insulted by the village people they wanted vengeance. Their dark side had become dominant and they wanted pay back.
But their Master knew how to control his dark side and would not allow them to destroy the village through their dark side.
We all have a dark side within as well as a light side. Which one dominates your life?
which side dominates your life?
