I was angry for a moment
Was offended and hurt, you see
But, I thought of Jesus
And all He’s done for me
What we say is the possibility of becoming a reality, some way or another. The statements that we declare can stem from our emotions and thoughts. Human beings are indeed impulsive by nature. We have a tendency to say our thoughts out loud before thinking what the actual context is about. There is a popular saying that states, “Do not add fuel to the fire.” In result, we must be mindful of what we are saying to others. Complaining and talking about others behind their backs adds to that fire and causes it to become larger. As Christians, we are supposed to be putting out those fires. A great leader surrounds oneself with greater and godly people who will uplift that leader to become better. Colossians 4:6 states:
“Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”
Talking ill about someone else breaks down the Spirit. The Spirit is actually a gentle aspect of God so when there is ill-will towards another individual, there is disrespect and offense towards the Spirit. We emerge into someone different due to from what is dwelling within us. In other words, our emotions bring out another side or character of ourselves that are reflected as negative. All in all, be mindful of what you say wherever you are. Make the other person better, not bitter.
May God Bless You All.
