Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”
Wow, in everything! This verse doesn’t say do to those people you love what you would have them do or do to those people on the days you feel like it or do to those people on the days your hormones haven’t taken over, it says in EVERYTHING do to others what you would want them to do to you.
We all know this will probably be an area of growth until we see Jesus but that doesn’t make it something we can ignore. We need to always continue to work at being ladies whose words are seasoned with grace. We are not always going to be perfect but that doesn’t give us a license to just say whatever we want whenever we want.
Don’t misunderstand, there are times when speaking out is necessary and appropriate we just need to pray for the wisdom of God to know when to speak and when to bite our tongues. As strong women of God there are times we need to boldly take a stand and be firm in our words.
The key here would be to ask God to take control of our tongues and to guide us daily in what is right. Believe me if you ask Him to convict you when you say things you shouldn’t He will certainly do that for you! Pray today that God will give you grace in dealing with others especially those that really seem to require it.
