Be kind to each other...
RECKLESS WORDS
A few days ago someone hurt my feelings. I'm sure her intention was not to hurt me, she just wanted me to know her opinion. And it differed from mine.
I thought about the words she used, and the way she used them. She could have said what she did in a different way. But I suppose that's not her personality.
Proverbs 12:18 Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
I've often wondered if some of the things I've said in passing hurt someones feelings. I didn't mean it to be hurtful, but our opinions were different.
People call or email me almost everyday sharing something "someone said" that hurt them.
I try to see that hurtful person the way Jesus would see them. I remind myself it's okay to have an opinion different from mine.
We just have to remember to sow seeds of kindness with our words. We don't have to use reckless words to get our point across.
Be kind to one another.

Thank you for this Kathryn. I had the same predicament at another poetry site where I took a stand against homosexuality. The other writer got so irked when I declared what God says about it in the Bible and up to now he still uses poetry to personally attack me, much to his own detriment. Hurtful words may wound for a time but let's find our refuge in Jesus Christ, Who was first to receive such words. Forgiveness sets us free and we receive more grace.
