Reckless Words. A soft answer has often been the means of breaking a hard heart. Trusting the LORD, we don’t need to use words as weapons.
When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate. 1 Peter 2:23
. . . And sometimes not answering at all is the best way to deal with mean or cruel words or comments.
Prayer – Dear GOD, please give me self-control through Your HOLY SPIRIT when I am tempted to retaliate with words.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by GOD and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of GOD may be competent, equipped for every good work.
Family Bible –
There are many criminals who try to get rich quick by making fake money. How do you learn to recognize fake money so that you can catch a person who does this? The best way to recognize fake money is to become very, very familiar with real money. By studying the truth it becomes easier to recognize what is false. This famous verse speaks of the nature and purpose of the Bible. Paul wrote it to Timothy in order to teach him how to recognize false teachers. For Paul, the best way to avoid falsehood is to know the truth in the depths of the soul. GOD’s word is the means GOD has given us in order that we might become wise by knowing and LOVEING the truth. As you pray, consider that the infinite and holy GOD who created this entire world LOVES us enough to reveal himself to us in His word. Pray that the LORD would give you a desire to meditate on his word night and day in order to know Him more fully and obey Him more thoroughly. Ask the LORD to help you to grow in your understanding of His truth and to worship Him because of it.
