Open mouth… insert foot. We have all had those moments that we wish we could take back – said something stupid, rude or downright mean. Sometimes we take the time to apologize, other times we avoid it completely. Maybe it is time we put our mouths to the test.
“Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing” Proverbs 12:18
Lord, please help us to watch what we say – to truly think and pray before we share the thoughts that randomly go through our heads. We know Lord that you are the source of all wisdom and we ask that you bless us with your wisdom. Teach us to walk in your Son’s ways and to share your love with everyone. Please let our words bring healing to people and not pain.
Go find someone you need to apologize to for your harsh words. Share words of love with your children today instead of criticism. Speak a kind word to a stranger.
