Speak No Evil


The tongue is one of the hardest things to tame and is the most powerful body part we have. We have the ability to cause war or peace with this little instrument.  The Bible tells us “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone”(Romans 12:13). Well, what happens when they don’t want peace?

Titus 3:2 says that we are not to speak evil of no man but be gentle, and show kindness to all men. Even when someone speaks evil of you unjustly and even when it hurts you, we all are still required not to speak evil against another. But, what am I suppose to do when they keep speaking evil against me?

You are to keep in remembrance that we all at some time were and did foolish hurtful things but through it all, God never spoke evil of us. He instead with loving kindness drew us in love and showed us the error of our ways. Even now we do things not pleasing to our loving father but he still doesn’t speak evil of us.  Instead, He has mercy for us and convicts our hearts to repent.

 That is how we are to be with others. Loving one another with the same love we are loved with and having mercy as we are shown mercy for each other always praying for the needs of others as well as for ourselves.

Try taking the next 30 days and for everyone who speaks evil of you show them, love instead. Speak good and edifying things of them and see how your life changes for the good.

Just Grateful


Every day isn’t always easy, but everyday I strive to stay connected with God. I know that I can’t do anything without God moving ahead of me.  Am I perfect, by all means no! My children can push me to the edge and make me want to sin with my lips and sometimes I have to just walk away.  My boss can say some things that make me want to turn around and ask her who do you think you are talking too.  Bills fill my mailbox, doctor appointments fill my day, and family can pull me in twenty different directions.  It’s when I close my eyes, walk away, or fall to my knees and pray that I know God is with me through it all.  Even when I don’t know how I am going to make it, God speaks so ever softly to my spirit and calms my fears and erases my doubts.

Join me as I take this moment and close my eyes and think back on how God has always been there.  Let His peace that surpasses all understanding wash over you and know that He is God all by his self.
