Standing in the wilderness between the Israelites and the Egyptians was a pillar of a cloud. This cloud was put in place to keep the two groups of people separate. 
The same thing that acted as a barrier for the Egyptians was a protection to the Israelites. 
May we always be found slow to speak, slow to wrath, gracious and loving because our view of the situation could be entirely different from the person that is seeing the same thing from a different position. 
Scripture taken from: Exodus 14:19-20
