James said the tongue is like fire that can burn down an entire forest. (James 3) The tongue is a small part of the body but can bring huge disaster ( can break a lot of hearts...). And so we always have to choose the right words... the perfect words before we speak or write it down.
Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
Have you hurt someone with your words lately? You made the wrong choice of words and got misunderstood for something you really didn't mean? To your parent? Friend? Loved one? And it breaks your heart that you've broken that person's heart?
Then say "Sorry". Ask for forgiveness. From the person you have hurt and from God. And ask Jesus to help you not to hurt that person again...esp. when you really don't mean it because you love em.
I think I'll post a sticky note today for somebody... to say I'm sorry. *sigh* I told Jesus I make the silliest mistakes a lot of times...
And I could really make that person tree of sticky notes because my regrets are as many as sack of leaves--a big sack of leaves, that is. ( I think I look like the discouraged Honey O. right now... with drooping head and all. *wink*)
If you would happen to read this... tonight, next week or a couple of years after...
I'm so sorry.
That`s not what I meant.
Will you forgive me?
Is there anyone you would like to say sorry too, today?
