The most dangerous weapon we have is our tongue. We can’t always know how our words are received but we must try to show love in them all.
If you catch me saying “You should….”, STOP me. I think that is an overused phrase but often it is taken by another as, “You don’t know what you’re doing, but I do.”
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Eph 4:29 (Notice it says “their needs”….not ours!)
