Words n' such.

I'm so not good at this whole blog thing, but when I find something worthwhile it brings me back. Here's my scoop of worthwhileness.

This devotional was just too beautiful not to share.

Check it. God's timing is impeccable.

"Poorly chosen words can cause confusion and strife. When those words come from the lips of a leader, the tension is magnified. Scripture is clear that we are responsible for our actions and words. When our words cause misunderstandings, it is our duty to humble ourselves and try to make things right. A humble heart and a sincere appeal will go far to make amends.

If you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, then do this, my son, to free yourself, since you have fallen into your neighbor's hands: Go and humble yourself; press your plea with your neighbor! Proverbs 6:2-3

Prayer: Dear Lord, so many times I speak before I think it through. Please forgive me. I know this causes problems and misunderstandings for those around me. I ask for Your help in this area. Give me courage to humble myself, admit my mistakes and make things right with those I have mislead. In Jesus' Name, Amen!"

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! I hope this touched you in some way.
