HAVING IDENTIFIED THE PEOPLE, I HAVE HARMED, I WILL NOW GO AND MAKE RESTITUTION TO THEM. UNLESS TO DO IS GOING TO CAUSE THEM OR OTHER PAIN OR SUFFERING.
A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. Matthew 12:35
A good person produces good words! What we say should please God. When you speak to others would you speak differently if you thought God was examining every word you said? Would He approve of your words and your thoughts?
As we progress in recovery we need to change the way we think and the way we speak. I used to swear a lot. I don’t know why I just did. And I used to think all the wrong thoughts. Until I came into a relationship with the Holy Spirit, started to check myself and ask myself the question: “Would God approve?” We change what we say when we allow God’s love to guide our day.”
YOUR WORDS REVEAL YOUR MOTIVES TO GOD
Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.” Matthew 12:36-37
YOUR WORDS CAN HELP OR HINDER OTHERS
A gentle response defuses anger, but a sharp tongue kindles a temper-fire. Proverbs 15:1
SOMETIMES IT’S BEST TO SAY NOTHING
