James 1:19-20
"Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God"

Hebrews 12:14-15
"Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many defiled"

Philippians 2:5
"Let this mind be in you, which is also in Christ Jesus"

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths"

It is very hurtful when our words or intentions are misinterpreted. It can leave a spiritual wound, that takes time to heal. For this reason, we should always be slow and careful before speaking. We must be mindful of the words we speak and how others may perceive them. Consult God often, and He will bridle your tongue before words or deeds are done that can permanently damage relationships. We're not perfect, only our Father above. When you discover your words or actions offended someone, go to them in love and apologize. If you are the one hurt by someone's words or actions...STOP! Seek God first, and ask Him to speak through you. Explain what happened and how it made you feel, "do not" go in attack mode!

Misunderstandings can often be resolved by being open and honest, and sprinkling your words with God's compassion.
May the love of God Bless and keep you!


I'm Too Blessed To Be Stressed!!!

Have you ever had someone to misunderstand something that you said due to failure to communicate clearly or maybe something that you did that you thought was good but it too was misunderstood? How did it make you feel? You probably would agree with me, that it leaves you feeling frustrated and at a loss as to how to go about resolving the misunderstanding. With this same measurement, imagine how the other person may feel to if you were the one who said or did something that was misunderstood.
.
When we find ourselves in the midst of misunderstanding, God’s word reminds us as how to conduct ourselves
Ephesians 4:15 “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:”
Proverbs 15:1 “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”
Colossians 4:6 “ Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”

I have found that when I really, really lower my voice, in the heat of the moment, it keep the situation from getting out of hand.
One needs to be willing to talk things out in a respective and polite manner and be a good listener when the other person is talking as well.
It is God's will that we live peaceably as possible with others. When that is not possible, we should agree to disagree and leave it at that.
My brother and I have to do that very thing over one particular topic. This way we can still love and be close to one another.


What is your thoughts?
