Hello Dear Ones,
In our conversations...
It is so easy to criticize others, even loved ones.
It is easy to make assumptions about someone's intentions or motives.
It is easy to interrupt instead of letting someone finish what they are saying.
It is easy to get defensive instead of really listening to what someone is trying to say.
It is easy to accuse someone of something we don't even know is true.
Instead, we should love in thought, word, and deed.
We should watch out for our little member, our tongue (James 3:5), and remember the fire it starts that is hard to put out.
Words can be so very painful to the hearer, and we cannot take back what has been said.
