Patience and the Words I Speak
Never forget to be patient
Never forget to be patient,
Because patience is not too quick to speak.
(“Never Forget” Line 3)
Therefore, as God’s choice, holy and loved, put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. (Colossians 3:12, CEB)
You are abundantly patient, Lord, with me, an imperfect performer. Thank you. As I walk with you, please help to grow in me the same kind of patience for others so that they might see a reflection of you in me.
Do you see people who are quick to speak? There is more hope for fools than for them. (Proverbs 29:20, CEB)
Word can either praise or condemn, build up or tear down. Let my words today be thoughtful, benefitting those who hear them and pointing others in your direction. Give me the wisdom and self-control I need to consider my words before they leave my lips.
