When someone or something “pushes your buttons”, who is in control?
Sometimes we react because we do not understand the language or intent of the one we are dealing with. Sometimes we just do not think. Sometimes we think we deserve to come back at the button pushers.
Reactions tend to be emotional and raw. Not always the best prescription for peace and progress.
Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
