Day 6: Speaking Kindly
One of the things I hate most about myself: my impatience and unkindness towards my family. Why is it easy to be rude and mean to those I love most and save politeness for people I don’t know? Why does familiarity breed contempt?
James 3:8 – But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
My goal for today was simple: speak only kind words. It wasn’t exactly easy, but not as hard as I thought it would be. Yeah, there were a few moments when I had to consciously bite my tongue before I responded without thinking, but overall I was able to focus on my goal before speaking.
I think I would benefit from making this a goal every day.
