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.

It’s Not You…..Just Ride The Storm Out

Ride out the storm

Sometimes you have done everything right and stood before God blameless when trouble arises. But I have come to tell you, don’t get discouraged. Trouble has come to purge out your camp. We don’t always see that our haters are the closest ones to us. One of Job’s closest friends called him a liar in the midst of his distress. Instead of comforting him during one of the most horrific times of his life he called him unrighteous. He said God was punishing him. Sn: Watch out for those BFFIGT (best friends forever only in good times) smiling in your face but all the time praying for your fall, because they really want to take your place.
