“My dearest brothers and sisters, take this to heart: Be quick to listen, but slow to speak. And be slow to become angry, for human anger is never a legitimate tool to promote God’s righteous purpose.”

Be Careful What You Say

Here’s a word from Dawson…

Have you ever really wanted to go off on someone? I mean, you want to call them back and tell them off! Well, that happened to me, but I didn’t call them back. And I’m glad I didn’t.

Usually, when you go off on somebody, it may make you feel good for a moment or two; but then after a while, you think, “Why did I do that?” You cannot take that back. It’s impossible!

So be careful what you say, because it may cause you to pay.

“My dearest brothers and sisters, take this to heart: Be quick to listen, but slow to speak. And be slow to become angry, for human anger is never a legitimate tool to promote God’s righteous purpose.” James 1:19-20 TPT

This scripture is a good reminder for all of us. Pray for those we serve who deal with anger issues. Pray they will accept God’s help to forgive those they need to forgive and will allow His love and peace to fill them.
