When you hear how they really feel

Church Family,

I can promise you this, no one thinks you are perfect and therefore, no one will always speak positively about everything that you do.

Ecclesiastes 7:20-22 Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins. 21Do not take to heart all the things that people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. 22Your heart knows that many times you yourself have cursed others. 

There is wisdom in remembering that we are sinful, judgemental, and can overreact. The tongue is a powerful thing, as James 3 points out, but we also have to be careful to guard our hearts against what we hear. Satan can take a few small words and rip a life apart. Have you allowed something that you overheard ruin your day, family, or ministry? Have you forgotten how sinful you were and are? If need be to today be willing to forgive others and then seek the forgiveness of God. Don't let Satan sow discord.

Love, Serve, Go

Thank you Tammie and April. I have to admit this is a much needed word from God today for my life.

Thanks. Brian, for this reminder. Most of us don't think about the wrong we do, but we always see the wrongs others do. I have to remind myself that GOD doesn't just forgive me, HE forgives those we ask, and I should do the same.
