Sharp Tongue

Psalm 57:4 “I lie down among lions that greedily devour human prey; their teeth are spears and arrows, their tongues sharp swords.”

I don’t often post scripture, but this has been laying heavy on my heart lately. I have been hurt by words before and I am guilty of hurting people with my words. Shouldn’t we find a better pastime? If you think it would be hurtful for someone to hear what you said, just don’t say it even if they’ve hurt you.

Matthew 5:39 “But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”

The best “revenge” you can get on someone is to let God handle it. Have you ever prayed about a problem more than you’ve talked about it with your friends? God will give you the peace you seek from commiserating with others. I promise.
