Here is the next installment of my Five Minute Free Writes Challenge.
Remind them of this, and charge them before the Lord to avoid disputing about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2: 14-15(ESV)
Sometimes it can be such a challenge to avoid disputes with words. My flesh can get the best of me. Several instances recently have me seeking God and asking Him to guide my words and actions. I would rather be right with God instead of right with the world.
There is a delicate balance between speaking truth, in love, and biting my tongue because the words I want to speak, even though spoken in truth, are not spoken in love and are better off not said. I don’t need to fight my battles, God will fight them for me and fight them better than I ever could.
Righteous lips are the delight of a king,
Proverbs 16:13 (ESV)
