Need a little encouragement in the middle of your week? Start your Wednesday's off right! Renew your spirit and refresh your soul.
What do the unfriendly and wicked have in common, both are considered fools. Though it is the harder path, we are called to listen to each other before we speak and act. In fact, you would be considered wise in God's eyes if you can act in kindness and know when to hold your tongue. How many times have we struck up an argument just to get our opinion across? I bet we would all be raising our hands for this scenario. There is beauty in the variety of opinions and ideas. How unique and prudent to be able to listen and respect what others have to say. What would be even more the wise would be to discern when to hold comments back the next time our opinions don't align. It may not be easy, but next time just think to yourself "what will be accomplished if I begin to argue?" Will their mind really be swayed with heated words or would a gentle, well-thought approach possibly make a difference?
