Throughout our lives, we will encounter countless times when we may have an emotional reaction. These reactions sometimes lead to harsh words. However, Andrew Wachter reminds us to, "Say what you mean, but don't say it mean." When we come from a place of love, we can find ways to respond that diffuse instead of escalate a situation!
God is full of love, grace, and mercy. He tells us the truth, but He is not mean. God only wants what is best for each and every one of us. We should follow God's example when we interact with each other. We can call on Him to share with us the love, grace, mercy, and guidance that we need. Before we respond with harsh words that stir up anger, we can allow God to give us the soft answer that will allow others to see His glory through us!
Talk to God and allow Him to give you the perfect response!
Thank You for Your love, grace, and mercy in my life. Help me to always call on and listen to You for the perfect response that does not lead to anger. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
