Watch your tongue…
It’s that time of year when we gather together with family, friends, and others to fellowship, celebrate, and spend time with others that we may not see that often. Hopefully, these times are full of fun, love, and create more warm memories.
This can also be a time where our petty differences, resentments, and unchecked emotions can try to take the stage in front of the captive audience gathered.
Please take this as a suggestion and guard your words!
Our self-will can override our spiritual connection during times of stress and anxiety leading to all sorts of words and actions that we later regret.
Hopefully, you can direct those nasty words to stay inside your head and not come rolling off your tongue.
Remember the Holy Spirit lives within you and can give you grace, peace, and comfort during these times IF you let Him… Check your experience…
“Patience, tolerance, understanding and love are the watchwords.” Big Book pg 118
Lord, let our words be driven from love and kindness and not from motives of hurt and pain, AMEN.
“So also the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is always ready to pour out its deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our heavenly Father, and sometimes it breaks out into curses against men…” James 3:5-9
Have a blessed day Y’all!
